Effective Bruxism Treatment in Tulsa with Dr. Mark E. Massaro

Bruxism Treatment

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a common condition that can cause significant damage to your teeth, jaw, and overall oral health. At the practice of Dr. Mark E. Massaro in Tulsa, we specialize in diagnosing and treating bruxism, offering personalized solutions to protect your teeth and alleviate the symptoms of this often overlooked condition.

Understanding Bruxism

Bruxism involves the grinding or clenching of teeth, often unconsciously and during sleep. While it can occur as a standalone issue, it's frequently associated with factors like stress, anxiety, misaligned teeth, or sleep disorders. If left untreated, bruxism can lead to:

  • Tooth wear and damage
  • Jaw pain and TMJ disorders
  • Headaches and earaches
  • Increased tooth sensitivity

Recognizing the signs of bruxism is the first step toward getting the treatment you need to protect your dental health.

Bruxism Treatment Options

Dr. Mark E. Massaro and his team offer a variety of treatments for bruxism, tailored to the severity of your condition and your specific needs. These may include:

  • Custom Night Guards: The most common treatment for bruxism, custom night guards are designed to fit your teeth precisely, providing a barrier to prevent grinding and cushioning the jaw muscles to reduce tension.
  • Dental Correction: In cases where bruxism is caused by misaligned teeth, corrective treatments such as orthodontics or restorative dentistry can alleviate the condition by improving bite alignment.
  • Stress Management: Since stress is a common trigger for bruxism, we may recommend strategies or therapies to help manage stress, including referral to specialists if necessary.
