Bruxism is the technical term used to describe tooth-grinding. If bruxism becomes a habit, teeth may become loose and damage to the gums and jaw may occur. Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ) may be a result of tooth-grinding. Sensitivity to heat or cold, stress, allergies, or nutritional deficiencies may all contribute to bruxism.
- Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
- A homeopathic remedy that is sometimes used to treat Bruxism is called Belladonna.
- A type of splint that can be placed over the teeth can be suggested for people that have bruxism. The splint won't correct the problem; however, it will help to shield the teeth from damage.
- Another alternative treatment to bruxism may be biofeedback.
