How You Can Identify If You Suffer From Bruxism:

Have you ever woken up with pain in your jaw, neck or head?

Do your teeth feel worn, cracked or more sensitive? You may have a bruxism problem.

This condition causes us to clench or grind our teeth involuntarily while sleeping or even during the day without being aware of it.

Muscle fatigue or difficulty opening the mouth can be clear signs.

During your visit to the dentist we can detect it more accurately and determine the best solution for you.

Ignoring bruxism is not an option, as it can lead to serious problems for your oral health, such as severe enamel damage, accelerated wear, tooth loss, chronic facial pain and sleep disorders.

Avoid them now!

Why Bruxism Occurs?

Were you aware that almost 70% of the Spanish population experiences bruxism to some degree? Its causes are varied, among the most common we find:

Stress and anxiety

Frequently, situations of stress and anxiety can result in involuntary clenching or grinding of the teeth, especially at night.

Sleep Problems

Bruxism is often associated with sleep disorders such as restless legs syndrome or sleep apnea.

Misalignment of Teeth

Misalignment of the teeth or jaw can lead to bruxism, as the jaw seeks a comfortable position and can result in clenching or grinding of the teeth.

Influence of Medications and Substances

Medications, such as antidepressants, and substances such as alcohol can trigger bruxism. In consultation we explore this possible cause to give you a clear understanding of what might be causing it.

This is Our Approach to Bruxism Treatment in Lanzarote

We have a dentist in Lanzarote who will be dedicated exclusively to your case.

We will begin by relieving any acute muscle pain you may be experiencing with anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants and specific therapies such as massage to mitigate the tension and pain caused by bruxism.

We will then assess the severity of the damage in detail to determine the course of action.

Treatment can vary from person to person, but commonly includes the creation of a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect the teeth and relieve muscle tension.

Overnight wear is often advised to prevent dental damage. This is recommended for mild cases of bruxism.

If significant damage to the teeth has already occurred, rehabilitation with crowns may be the way to go to restore worn tissues and improve function and comfort.

A relaxation splint may also be part of the treatment.
