Bruxism is when something causes you to clench and grind your teeth. This can have severe repercussions on your teeth, by wearing and grinding them down as well as causing pain and disorders in your jaw as well as headaches. It is when bruxism, or teeth grinding occurs while you are you are sleeping, that most damage occurs. Bruxism is one of the leading causes of teeth loss and gum recession. Bruxism also causes sleep disorders and it can be uncomfortable wearing a mouth guard to protect your teeth while you are sleeping.
If your bruxism is causing jaw pain, headaches, wearing down of teeth, it may be that an unconscious or conscious anxiety is causing you to grind your teeth. Once you learn how to take back control of your thinking and and the feeling of helplessness towards certain areas of your life, the grinding should stop.
If you would like to know more about how I can work with you in overcoming bruxism, I offer a free initial consultation where I can explain this as well as answer any questions that you may have. Having used many different approaches over the years, to treat this condition, by far, taking clients through The Thrive Programme has been the most successful, with long lasting results
