Advice From New York City’s Best Dentist: How to Stop Grinding Your Teeth, Manhattan, New York

If you wake up with a headache, muscle pain, joint discomfort, or stiff shoulders, you may be grinding your teeth at night. Many people are not even aware that they grind their teeth, and for this reason, it is necessary for a dentist to examine your teeth.

Grinding wears down your teeth, contributes to tooth decay, and causes sleep problems and joint dysfunction. In some cases, it even causes arthritis. The Upper East Side’s Lana Rozenberg D.D.S. knows that this is a preventable problem. Follow these tips for a smile makeover:

  • Get a Mouth Guard or Plate: Your dentist will work with you to create a custom-made plastic appliance for your top or bottom teeth. This will reduce jaw muscle pain and protect your teeth and joints. This method is considered the treatment of choice.

  • Get a Mandibular Advancement Device: These custom-made appliances bring your bottom jaw forward. They are typically used to manage snoring and sleep apnea associated with grinding.
  • Reduce Stress and Anxiety: Stress and anxiety are known causes of grinding. Relaxation, meditation techniques, psychiatry, and therapy are all ways to manage stress. Also, consider decreasing your workload, spending more time with friends and loved ones, and adding enjoyable activities to your day.
  • Curb Related Daily Habits: Avoid clenching your teeth or using your teeth as a tool to tear or hold non-edible items. This breaks habits which may continue into your sleep.
