Grinding Your Teeth? Check With London Dentist
A rough estimate says that 3 in children and 1 among 20 adults unintentionally grind teeth, mostly during night. The sound that comes by grinding is called bruxism. A wife came in complaining of night grinding of teeth by her husband to the extent she had to shift her bed to another room,” says a dentist practicing in suburbs of London.
The noise truly is loud enough to bother people around. Not just that, unfortunately it renders disastrous effects on the person that grinds his/her teeth than he/she knows.
“Bruxism can exert great pressure on teeth surface that one can imagine,” says the expert; “to the tune of 10s in 100s of pounds per square inch.” This pressure can deal badly with the gum the tooth sits in as well as the bone that supports tooth, sometimes even a jaw joint can also face the music of bruxism.
Although, people who do grinding of teeth say that they do to release excess tension or emotional stress and/or nervousness, dental experts believe the cause is there within the mouth of a bruxist; grinding could be a person’s unconscious endeavor to tweak in the irregularities of their respective biting as well as chewing teeth surfaces, to correct inappropriate bite. Dental experts say that it is malocclusion.
If you notice a bruxist in your house don’t escape from him rather bring him/her to a dental expert before there is serious damage to teeth, gums and jaw joints,” says the bruxism expert in London.
