Do you have two or more of the following symptoms?
If you do, you may be a Bruxer. Bruxism is excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching, which is unrelated to normal function such as eating or talking.
What causes bruxism?
Although teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, it often occurs during sleep and is more likely caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth. It can also be caused by a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.
At Bona-Fide Dental, we provide an Austalian developed and manufactured device called SomnoBrux. SomnoBrux is a custom fit acrylic occlusal splints (dental guards). It is designed to protect patient’s teeth against heavy grinding and wear of the tooth surfaces while also relieving discomfort or painful symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. It is the most comfortable and acurately fitting device in the current market for Bruxism.
