Arestin: Antibiotic Agent
Bruxism is a habit of grinding or clenching the teeth. Clenching means you tightly hold your top and bottom teeth together. Grinding occurs when you silde your teeth back and forth over each other.
Bruxism can develop at any age, and children as well as adults can have the habit of grinding their teeth. Although the causes of bruxisum are not certain, several factors may be involved. Stressful situations, sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, and crooked or missing teeth may be responsible.
Night-guards are helpful for bruxism caused by sleep disorders, crooked or missing teeth or stress. Custom-made by Dr. Takamatsu from soft material to fit your teeth, the night-guard slips over the upper teeth and prevents contact between upper and lower teeth. It helps relieve some of the pressure of grinding or clenching, which can damage delicate jaw joints.
