Do you wake up with a sore jaw, teeth, or a headache? You might find you are grinding your teeth in your sleep.

It can often be a little difficult to correctly diagnose bruxism as it happens during your sleep. Although if you find you are waking up with a sore jaw, sore teeth or regular headaches this might be a sign you are grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw at night.

Many patients we see at Main Street Dental aren’t aware that their headaches and jaw pain can be a contributing factor to dental concerns. If you are waking up in the mornings with any of these symptoms it may be time to visit the team at Main Street Dental. We are dedicated to making sure we can provide the correct treatment to relieve your pain.

Occlusal Splints

If you are suffering from teeth grinding, most patients will invest in a mouthguard device known as an occlusal splint. Our team will examine your oral health and create a mouthguard that is custom fit to your lower teeth. An occlusal splint is designed to be worn at night or while you sleep. The overall goal is to retrain your teeth to stop grinding at night – it cannot cure but can help.

Some reasons for teeth grinding are:

Missing teeth

If you have noticed you are waking up with the above symptoms occlusal splints are a great way to protect your teeth.

Muscle Relaxant Injections

Another option for patients who are grinding or clenching their teeth during their sleep are muscle relaxant injections. Muscle relaxant injections can provide great pain relief from jaw pain or headaches as a result of Bruxism. Our team at Main Street Dental will carefully inject the muscle relaxant into the large muscle that moves the jaw (masseter muscle). This will make the muscles in your jaw week, with the goal to stop grinding and clenching.

It is important to note that muscle relaxant injects are not a cure for bruxism although they can control symptoms for up to 4 months.

Effects of Teeth Grinding or Clenching

Depending on the severity of your grinding or clenching, if not treated, you may experience some of the following effects of bruxism.
