Mouthguards for Grinding Teeth

Mouthguards for Grinding Teeth

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is often ignored. However, it can cause various problems, including headaches, muscle tightness, tooth chipping, and jaw pain. Bruxism is a common condition where a person grinds or clenches their teeth, usually at night while sleeping. Although prevalent, many people don’t even know they grind their teeth.

Are you among those who suffer from tooth pain but avoid going to the dentist? It’s not because you’re scared of the instruments that might be used; it’s about the cost. You’re not alone. According to a 2018 survey, three in five Australians put off their dental visits because they do not want to deal with the expense. So, you’re probably wondering if there is a way to reduce the costs.

Dental Implants: What They Are + Health Insurance Facts

If you have missing teeth, one of your options is to have implants. Dental implants are much like dentures, but the main difference is that they are a fixed solution, whereas dentures are removable. Implants are more preferred because they look like your natural teeth – even feel like them. They are longer-lasting, too and allow you to talk and chew almost as if you never lost a tooth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

A gleaming bright smile is everyone’s desire. Yet, most people do not feel confident smiling because of stained or discoloured teeth. Teeth whitening is a treatment that aids in removing discolouration, thus lightening teeth. Beverages and foods that stain the enamel can cause teeth discolouration. If you fail to brush your teeth for an extended period, your teeth could become discoloured. It happens due to food particle accumulation. Smoking may also cause teeth discolouration.

Do you hate going to the dentist? Perhaps you fear getting a tooth pulled or the instruments – even if they won’t be used on you. You probably don’t like sitting on the dentist’s chair and would rather suffer from your toothache at home. You think the pain will eventually go away. If you get so anxious about your next dental visit, you probably have dentophobia.
