Do your jaws click or hurt? Do you get frequent headaches or neck stiffness? Has your jaw been looking more squarish over the years? Does it seem like you’re always getting fillings?
Bruxism or grinding, can cause negative effects to the facial appearance like a square jaw, as well as dental problems such as teeth cracking and teeth splitting.
However, the true cause of the grinding must be figured out before any type of treatment method can be decided upon.
Occlusal splints or grinding splints have traditionally been the automatic answer but are not the only answer. These days muscle relaxants have allowed us to relax the muscles, ease tension and ease pain in the jaw joint muscles.
