Protect your teeth against wear!
Whether you clench your teeth or you grind them, the result is the same: it wears the tooth enamel. Bruxism can appear at any age. As there is no curative treatment, the prevention of lesions to the bucco-facial structures is the main therapeutic objective.
This motor activity is mostly unconscious, so pay attention to the following events:
- Dental abfractions (loss of hard tissue of the tooth including enamel and dentin);
- Dental fractures;
- Articular noises;
- Noises disturbing the household;
- Possible headaches and muscle aches in the jaw.
Talk to your dentist about it. They can take a look and recommend the best course of action!
