Bruxism / Teeth Grinding

Clinically proven solutions

Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you have bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth together during the day, or clench or grind them at night (sleep bruxism).

Sleep bruxism is considered a sleep-related movement disorder. People who clench or grind their teeth (brux) during sleep are more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and pauses in breathing (sleep apnoea). Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.

 

Symptoms of bruxism

Many people who grind their teeth are completely unaware of it until complications develop, it’s important to know the signs and symptoms of bruxism including:

    • Ringing or buzzing in the ears
      Wear and tear on the surface of the teeth
    • Sensitivity of the teeth
    • Teeth that are breaking, filling and crowns that fracture
    • Toothache for no apparent reason

Treatment of bruxism

In many cases, treatment isn’t necessary. Many kids outgrow bruxism without treatment, and many adults don’t grind or clench their teeth badly enough to require therapy.

We may suggest ways to preserve or improve your teeth. Although these methods may prevent or correct the wear to your teeth, they may not stop the bruxism.

Treatment options include certain dental approaches, therapies and medications including:

    • Occlusal splints and mouthguards.
    • Tooth adjustment
    • Teeth replacement
    • Diet and exercise
    • Medication

A careful and detailed analysis by our dentists at Mansion House Dental Practice will help establish the underlying causes and best mode of treatment for your condition, with a recommended treatment plan suited to your needs.

I've been registered with Mansion House Dental for a number of years now. I cannot fault the level of patient care and service provided by Dr Qasim Abbasi and his colleagues. When it comes to other private practices, you're normally given the hard upsell by dentists (particularly on cosmetic procedures). But at Mansion House Dental they have always put my long term wellbeing first.

Could not be happier with the service received from Dr. Abbasi. Visited from a colleague's referral, was cautious given the standard of service and professionalism from some of the practices near by. Very friendly and thoughtful practice, would recommend to anyone working in the city.

I’ve been to Mansion House Dental a number of times this year and on every occasion the care I have received from Dr Qasim and the rest of the team has been excellent. Dr Qasim is very knowledgeable and he always takes time to answer my questions and explain different treatment options clearly. The facilities are clean and modern and appointment times are flexible. I highly recommend this practise for both routine check ups and whitening.

I highly recommend this dental practice! My doctor was Qasim Abbasi and I can tell he has a great attention to detail and high intrinsic motivation to deliver the best outcome for his patients. Over the past couple of months I had a series of visits I was always amazed by his professionalism and attitude when challenged with complex issues.

I can’t rate this practice highly enough - I had Invisalign on both upper and lower arches, plus whitening and a cosmetic filling for a chipped tooth. I also had lingual retainers. Every step of the process was explained to me upfront, there were no hidden costs, and service was really professional and friendly. I had quite a few queries and they were all responded to super quickly (usually same day.) I am recommending to friends and wouldn’t hesitate to come back - thank you!!

A Highly skilled and modern practice
