What is bruxism?

Bruxism is mainly characterised by intense and unconscious occlusion of the teeth (clenching/grinding), usually at night, although it can also occur during the day. Its consequences can go beyond dental health, affecting overall quality of life.

2

Symptoms of bruxism

Bruxism can manifest itself through a variety of symptoms. It can cause premature tooth wear, jaw pain, headaches and facial muscle discomfort. In more severe and chronic cases, bruxism can contribute to the development of temporomandibular joint problems. Because of its consequences, bruxism requires medical attention and treatment, especially if it is associated with painful symptoms or significant dental damage.

3

Benefits

The benefits of this treatment include the significant reduction of force in the act of clenching/closing the teeth/chewing and thus the prevention of excessive tooth wear. In addition, the relief of muscle tension helps to reduce the painful symptoms associated with bruxism, improving patients’ quality of life.

How do we tackle bruxism at Clínica Escoda?

Treatment approaches may include therapies to reduce stress and the use of mouthguards at night to prevent tooth wear.
An emerging therapeutic modality to treat bruxism that we address at Clínica Escoda is the injection of relaxant protein into the muscles responsible for this intense contraction. This protein acts by temporarily blocking the nerve signal in these muscles, resulting in controlled muscle relaxation.
