Find Out More About Bruxism

Bruxism is the most commonly known sleep disorder that can cause the most damage to your teeth during sleeping hours. Clenching and grinding occur when the reflex nerve control center in your brain turns off and reflex pathways become active.

To determine if you suffer from bruxism, the trained professionals at Mountain Vista Dental Care can accurately tell the difference between damage caused by bruxism or damaged caused by normal wear and tear.

Warning Signs of Bruxism

If bruxism is not properly diagnosed and treated by a highly trained dentist, it can lead to other health issues.
  • Chronic stress
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Earaches
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Eating disorders
  • Anxiety
Contact Dr. McConkie today to schedule an appointment to determine if you suffer from bruxism.

How Bruxism is Treated?

Unfortunately, there is no single cure for bruxism and treatment can vary from patient to patient.

At Mountain Vista Dental Care, we will first determine if you suffer from bruxism with the use of BiteStrip. This electromyography device senses and monitors activity in the jaw muscles during sleep while measuring the severity of the condition.
  • NTI-tss device
  • Botox
  • Relaxation exercises
  • Stress management education
  • Biofeedback mechanisms
  • Crowns
  • Gum grafts
  • Crown lengthening
After an accurate diagnosis, our knowledgeable staff will assist you in finding the right treatment plan.
