  • "As you walk in and are happily greeted by reception the first thing you notice is the care that has been taken to create a relaxing and comfortable environment while you wait, albeit a short wait. Perhaps most importantly your cleaning is done with the gentlest touch as every care is taken to avoid discomfort. Dr. Gentry is every bit an educator as she is a highly skilled dentist. While being seen she thoroughly explained, in easily understood terms, what was going on behind my lips and how to best continue good oral hygiene practices. Gentry Dental sets the bar high."

I have bruxism, what are my options?

Headache Relief | Bruxism Charlotte, NCHeadaches, jaw pain, tenderness when you bite down, and excessive wear to your teeth are some of the symptoms you may face when you clench and grind your teeth, otherwise known as bruxism. Grinding your teeth can cause a host of issues that sometimes become quite debilitating for patients.

The causes of bruxism vary for each patient and can include:

  • Stress or anxiety
  • A misaligned bite
  • Missing or crooked teeth
  • Sleep apnea

This can be a difficult condition to diagnose on your own since most patients typically grind their teeth at night while they sleep.

What can we do to treat bruxism?

Dr. Gentry can diagnose bruxism and create a custom night guard that is comfortable to wear during sleep and protects your teeth from the damage bruxism causes. In some cases, orthodontic treatment may help to alleviate bruxism and its symptoms. Dr. Gentry can discuss options for using Invisalign or Six Month Smiles to align your teeth.

If you suspect that you might suffer from bruxism, or you hear a loved one grinding their teeth at night, contact Gentry Dental to schedule an examination. Getting to the root cause of your bruxism will help Dr. Gentry recommend the most effective treatment for bruxism in Charlotte.
