Bruxism (tooth grinding) is one of the leading contributors to tooth damage. When you visit American Dental Center, our experienced dentists will check for signs of bruxism, and we will work with you to determine an appropriate restorative treatment if it has damaged your smile. To learn more about bruxism in North Miami, Florida, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Rafah Abdelmonem and Dr. Peter Rossen, call us today at 305-625-5400.

Bruxism can occur at any time, but it is most common at night. Common symptoms of bruxism include:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Aching jaws
  • Muscle tension in the neck
  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Gum recession
  • Fractured and broken teeth
  • Arthritis
  • Myofascial pain

Our dentists may recommend one or more treatments to help you get your bruxism under control. Common treatments include night guards and other oral appliances, Botox®, relaxation exercises, stress management, and biofeedback mechanisms. Once your bruxism is under control, our dentists will then work with you to repair the damage and restore your smile to full health and beauty.

We invite you to contact our office today to schedule a consultation with our skilled dentists and learn more about our treatments for bruxism. We are committed to helping you enjoy excellent oral health, comfortable oral function, and a beautiful smile.
