If you are someone who has just begun to experience bruxism, you may not have any idea it’s happening until you come in for a dental checkup. If you’ve long dealt with the problem, the evidence may show on your teeth and in other structures that support your oral cavity. To avoid feeling too worried about bruxism disorder and, instead, motivated to take care of your smile, your Riverside dentist offers some extremely helpful advice.

Why It’s Not The End Of The World

If we diagnose you with bruxism disorder, it’s very important that you don’t allow yourself to instantly feel overwhelmed or worried. The good thing about finding a functional disorder before severe damage occurs is that we can actually offer preventive care, so you avoid damage! As your Riverside dentist explains, you can expect the following:

  • Bruxism treatment is comfortable and noninvasive
  • If you have suffered from damage, we can fix your teeth with either cosmetic or restorative care

Why You Need To Treat It

You might think to yourself, “Well the dentist says I have bruxism but I don’t see or feel any damage!” If this is the case, you are lucky: We have detected the problem very early on. What you need to remember in any instance is that it’s very important to treat such an issue. Your Riverside dentist urges you to agree to treatment. It’s a gentle option that yields enormously impactful effects. By wearing a mouthguard while you sleep, you avoid worn teeth, TMJ disorder, broken teeth, chips, cracks, and even tooth loss.
