Millions of people are affected by bruxism, or teeth grinding. Occasional teeth grinding may not require treatment, but chronic teeth grinding can lead to serious jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.

Signs & Symptoms of Bruxism
If tooth grinding happens at night, you may not realise you have a problem. We can easily identify signs and symptoms of bruxism through a simple evaluation. Here are some signs and symptoms you can look for:

  • Worn, flattened, fractured or chipped teeth
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw pain or tightness in the jaw muscles
  • Earache
  • Headache
  • Facial pain
  • Damaged tissue on the inside of your cheek

Treatment for Tooth Grinding
Treatment for tooth grinding varies widely based on the individual diagnosis. We will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the cause for tooth grinding and create a personalised treatment plan to take care of your needs.

Splint Therapy / Night Guard – A dental splint or teeth grinding mouth guard may be the simplest form of treatment. This type of treatment is appropriate for patients whose teeth fit together properly and who have a healthy TMJ. The teeth grinding mouth guard is worn at night to prevent teeth grinding and protect teeth from wear.
Orthodontics – We may recommend orthodontic treatment to bring your teeth into the proper position and allow them to fit together harmoniously. We offer invisible braces for discreet treatment.

Bite Equilibration – Bite equilibration, or bite correction therapy, involves the dentist making minor adjustments to the teeth to allow them to fit together properly, eliminating stress and pressure.

Restorative Dentistry – For teeth that have been damaged by teeth grinding, We offer a range of restorative dentistry procedures to bring the teeth back to their proper health and beauty. We may use dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or cosmetic bonding to restore teeth.

Brushing should be done first thing in the morning and at bedtime – after their final snack.
Make sure your child uses only a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. If your child doesn’t like the “tingly taste” of the toothpaste you’re using, keep searching until you find a flavour they like. Make brushing a family affair; young children have not yet developed good coordination so your help with brushing is important. Brush along the gum line and the chewing surfaces using a small circular motion. Most children tend to miss the outer surfaces of the upper-back teeth and the inner surfaces of the lower-back teeth.

Brushing and proper diet are most important. We recommend flossing for a child who continues to get decay in between their teeth even after other preventative measures have not worked. If there are spaces in between your child’s teeth, there is no need to floss.
As we age through adolescence and into adulthood, flossing becomes increasingly important and should be starts as soon as teeth touch, so as to prevent gingivitis, periodontal infections and breath problems.

Anytime there is a strong chance for contact with other participants or hard surfaces, it is advisable to wear a mouthguard. Players who participate in basketball, soft ball, football, wrestling, soccer, rugby, in-line skating, martial arts as well as recreational sports such as skateboarding and bicycling should wear mouthguards while competing.

Yes, although crowding is common, we need to consider your child’s future oral health. A child with crowded teeth and jaw problems will not necessarily have more problems as they become an adult. However, adults with crowded teeth have more problems (tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontal disease, TMJ problems) than adults with good jaw and tooth alignment.

Because adult teeth are larger than baby teeth, jaw size and growth may not provide enough space. If you still see crowding by 8-9 years when all of the four upper and four lower adult teeth have erupted, the crowding will probably not improve. For most children and adults, crowding is the most common malocclusion. Sometimes a baby tooth is lost early because of lack of jaw space for new adult teeth. If you see crowding request an appointment for us at Wright Street Dental Clinic, Belmont, to examine your child, and discuss options with you.

Sealants are a very effective preventive therapy against tooth decay. On the chewing surface of the baby and adult molars are pits and fissures, which are normal imperfections of these teeth. Sealants fill in these areas to protect them from decay.

The sealant is a liquid that becomes hard like plastic after it is applied to the tooth. Sealant therapy, which was introduced over twenty years ago, is non-invasive (no drilling) and doesn’t require a local anaesthetic.

Malocclusion is a faulty bite. Most of the time, it happens because the size and shape of the teeth don’t match that of the jaws. It can also happen because the upper and lower jaws don’t match each other and the other bones of the face. A look at your child’s profile (side view of the head and face) may help you to see whether there is a problem with the growth of their jaw and facial bones.

The genetics of the parents determine the jaw growth and tooth size of children. Tooth decay of the baby teeth, premature loss of baby teeth from tooth decay and crowding are major causes of malocclusion. Premature loss of baby teeth due to lack of jaw space from erupting adult teeth also causes malocclusion.

A mouthguard is a flexible appliance made out of plastic that is worn in athletic and recreational activities to protect teeth from trauma.
 

Baby teeth are important for jaw growth, appearance, speech and most importantly, to keep the spacing for their adult teeth. Baby teeth are replaced by adult teeth at certain times that are specific to your child. Baby teeth lost early because of tooth decay is the leading cause for crowding of the adult teeth.

There are many reasons for tooth discolouration and even healthy children can experience this. Most stains are on the tooth surface and are caused by the build-up of plaque, usually from lack of good brushing or mouth breathing. We should be able to remove the stain if it is on the tooth surface.

Some discolouration is caused by disturbances that happen during tooth growth and cause stains in the enamel (hard outer covering) or the dentine (hard tissue under the enamel). Stains can also be caused by excess fluoride. In cases of childhood malnutrition, chronic illness, long term use of some medications or radiation therapy, tooth spots can result and the teeth will appear malformed (i.e. chipped or broken).

Back teeth (molars) may also be affected. By asking questions about your child’s health history and looking at the teeth, we may be able to identify the cause and suggest options to improve their appearance.

Parents are sometimes uninformed about the level of contact and potential for serious dental injuries involved with sports in which the child participates. Some, though not all schools, reinforce the health advantage of mouthguards for their contact sports. Cost may be another consideration, although mouthguards come in a variety of price ranges.

  • Stock mouth guards - these are a bulky gutter of rigid plastic available from pharmacies and sports stores. They are very uncomfortable, interfere with speech and breathing and because they are not firmly secured offer a false sense of protection.
  • Boil and Bite mouth guards - Pharmacies and sports stores also sell “boil and bite” mouth guards. They are made from a thermoplastic material which is softened in hot water and then placed in the mouth to mould to the teeth as the guard is bitten. Like stock guards, they are cheap but never fit well and their shape easily deforms. They can be uncomfortable, impair breathing and speech, offer limited protection and can be an airway hazard.
  • Custom fitted mouth guards - These are made by a dental professional using an impression of the teeth from special shock absorbing plastic. A custom fitted mouth guard fits a person’s mouth perfectly. The accurate fit and control of the thickness maximizes the shock absorbing effect. They fit comfortably and won’t interfere with breathing.

We support the use of mouthguards in a variety of sports activities to protect your mouth from injuries. More than 200,000 injuries to the mouth and jaw occur each year. A mouthguard can prevent serious injuries such as concussions, jaw fractures and neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw gets jammed into the upper jaw. Mouthguards are effective in moving soft issue in the oral cavity away from the teeth, preventing laceration and bruising of the lips and cheeks, especially for those who wear orthodontic appliances.

Fillings

It is highly likely that you will have to deal with a tooth cavity at some point in your life. While cavities are a particularly prevalent in children and adolescents, they can also affect adults. Regular visits to the dentist can stop cavities before they start.

What Causes Tooth Cavities
Tooth cavities, also called dental caries by dentists, are tooth decay. Tooth decay is often accelerated by plaque build up. When plaque comes in contact with sugars and starches from foods, it produces acid, which can damage tooth enamel over time and lead to tooth decay.

Tooth Cavity Symptoms
We can identify dental cavities before most patients experience symptoms, so it is important to maintain regular dental check-ups. At appropriate intervals, digital dental x-rays can identify problems at a very early stage, which will minimise treatment needs.  In advanced stages of tooth decay, you might experience:

  • Toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
  • Visible holes or pits in the teeth
  • Soreness around the gums

Tooth Cavity Treatment
If you already have cavities or if your teeth are showing signs of decay, Wright Street Dental clinic offers a range of general dentistry services to restore stability to the tooth and provide protection from future damage or decay.

  • Composite Dental Fillings – Composite fillings are placed in a single visit and are used to treat teeth with minor tooth decay.
  • Root Canal – If the tooth decay has advanced and is causing an infection at the root of the tooth, you may need a root canal. This procedure is the best way to treat a diseased tooth and avoid an extraction.

Dental Cavities are Highly Preventable
If you are experiencing tooth pain and suspect you have a tooth cavity, contact Wright Street Dental Clinic, Belmont, for a consultation and examination.
