Tips for Reducing Daytime Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding or bruxism is a common problem, which can lead to various dental issues and discomfort. It usually occurs during sleep, but some people may also grind their teeth during the day.

Here are some tips to help reduce daytime teeth grinding:

  • Identify the triggers that may cause you to grind your teeth during the day. Stress, anxiety, and tension are common causes of teeth grinding. Try to identify the sources of your stress and work to manage them.
  • Practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation to help reduce stress and promote relaxation.
  • Try to avoid stimulating substances like caffeine and alcohol, especially in the evening. These substances can increase the likelihood of teeth grinding.
  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly to help reduce any discomfort from teeth grinding.
  • Use a mouthguard, retainer, or splint, which can help protect your teeth from the effects of grinding. These devices can also help to retrain your jaw muscles and promote healthy jaw alignment.
  • Consult with your dentist to identify any underlying dental problems that may be contributing to your teeth grinding. Your dentist can also provide additional recommendations for managing your symptoms such as Botox for TMJ or a night guard.

By following these tips, you can reduce the likelihood and severity of daytime teeth grinding, promoting a healthier and more comfortable smile.

Very gentle and thorough cleaning. I appreciate the great customer service and no sales pressure like so many dentists. They just care about you and your teeth.

First timer here. Excellent service from start to finish. Warm and attentive front desk. Always a gamble with a new dental hygienist, but fortunately no assault charges will pressed on Nuvia—in fact, the complete opposite, I’ll lavish praise. Glad to say I checked out of there—after a thorough exam by the doctor, post-cleaning—painlessly, and with tingling teeth. Will be returning.
