How we treat problems with chewing

We often fail to notice grinding (bruxism) or clenching of teeth. These are natural spasms, with various causes, which can potentially raise the muscular tension and cause pain when chewing.

Teeth grinding, the cause of which is not yet known, is incurable. However, lifestyle adjustments to reduce stress can have a positive impact on a patient who grinds their teeth or has muscular tension. Where recommended, a resin night-guard may be used to preserve the integrity of the surface of the teeth and attempt to reduce muscular tension (“bite”).

What is gnathology?

Gnathology is a field in dentistry that deals with the masticatory system and its disorders – the way in which the teeth, muscles and movement of the two arches interact with each other when they come into contact during mastication, swallowing and phonation.
