Sleep Bruxism Treatment

Bruxism is a disorder that involves grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw, especially during sleep. This condition can cause many oral health problems, from cracked or worn teeth to temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders. If you have bruxism, it can cause painful and expensive oral health issues. At Northern Virginia Sleep Solutions, we offer sleep bruxism treatment at our dental sleep center in Alexandria, VA.

Teeth grinding or bruxism can occur for many reasons. Some individuals clench their jaw or grind their teeth due to stress or mental strain. For others, it can be due to teeth misalignment or other oral health conditions. Controlling bruxism while awake is possible through behavior changes, but you cannot control what happens while asleep. One of the best solutions for sleep bruxism treatment is using oral appliances to protect your teeth and jaw joint.

Teeth Grinding and Clenching Relief

If you suffer from bruxism, you can stop the damage to your teeth and jaw using a dental nightguard, an oral appliance. These customized mouth trays fit over the teeth and prevent the upper and lower teeth from touching. The oral appliance is created from a digital 3D impression of your teeth, ensuring it fits comfortably and securely over your teeth. Oral appliances can be used to protect your oral health from teeth grinding and jaw clenching, and they can be designed to treat other disorders such as snoring, sleep apnea and TMJ pain.

Dr. Hye Park is a highly skilled and experienced dentist specializing in non-invasive treatments for oral sleep disorders. She offers a variety of oral appliances and other treatments that can relieve bruxism, sleep apnea and snoring. Every treatment plan is personalized to the patient to provide the best results.
