If you suffer from any jaw pain or teeth clenching as you sleep, then you are not alone. Our team here at Moore Family Dental in Parkersburg, West Virginia, takes your oral health care very seriously, which is why we want to talk to you about how to get help for your bruxism, also known as teeth clenching, today, and get you the help and treatment you need.

Bruxism can be caused by many things ranging from misaligned teeth to stress. However, stress, in most cases, is the most common source for teeth clenching as you sleep. This often affects your sleep and rest habits, which can lead to many health conditions down the road. That is why the best way to treat it is to talk to your dentist, Dr. Aaron Moore, so you can find out the best way to treat your unique case.

In most cases, a night guard could be used to protect your teeth and jaw during the night. Muscle relaxers can also be used for some extreme cases to help with the tension in your jaw muscles. However, the most successful way to stop bruxism is to exercise and reduce stress in your life, so you can lead a healthier life and have positive oral health.

If you feel ready to get help for your bruxism, or need an appointment with our dentist, please call us today at 304-699-0359 to set up an appointment. Our friendly dental team is ready to help you and your family in any way we can.
