Bruxism is a condition in which you grind your teeth or clench your jaw. Occasional grinding usually causes no harm. It’s when it occurs on a regular basis, that it causes problems severe enough to warrant treatment. Grinding your teeth can be severe enough to wear your teeth down. Clenching your jaw can lead to TMJ problems.
We must first evaluate the damaged caused. You may need treatment before the bruxism can be treated. Call us now at (815) 741-1700 to schedule your consultation.
