Bruxism

Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you have bruxism, you may subconsciously clench your teeth when you’re awake (awake bruxism) or clench or grind them during sleep (sleep bruxism).

Sleep bruxism is considered a sleep-related movement disorder. People who clench or grind their teeth during sleep are more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and pauses in breathing (sleep apnoea).

Teeth Grinding in Edinburgh

Symptoms

Doctors don’t completely understand what causes bruxism, but it may be due to a combination of physical, psychological and genetic factors.

Awake bruxism may be due to emotions such as anxiety, stress, anger, frustration or tension. Or it may be a coping strategy or a habit during deep concentration.

Sleep bruxism may be a sleep-related chewing activity associated with arousals during sleep.

  • Teeth grinding or clenching, which may be loud enough to wake up your sleep partner
  • Teeth that are flattened, fractured, chipped or loose
  • Worn tooth enamel, exposing deeper layers of your tooth
  • Increased tooth pain or sensitivity
  • Tired or tight jaw muscles, or a locked jaw that won’t open or close completely
  • Jaw, neck or face pain or soreness
  • Pain that feels like an earache, though it’s actually not a problem with your ear
  • Dull headache starting in the temples
  • Damage from chewing on the inside of your cheek
  • Sleep disruption

My fear of dentists is gone, thanks the team at Essential Dental Care. So caring, so considerate, so professional. I had a hygienist service and two fillings. I have never had such wonderful experience sitting in a dentist chair. I was recommend this place by a friend, and I am forever grateful. There is a group of us now, who all go here :) Thank you all and you sure have me as your regular customer for years to come.

My husband and I would not go anywhere else, Dr Paul is the most experienced dentist that we have had and explains everything to you. My husband is in the middle of getting implants and he was a bit apprehensive at first but Paul was very patient and explained everything that is going happen and reassured him. It is a long process but will be worth the wait. Also the staff could not be more helpful and very friendly too. Would recommend this practice to anyone.💓

由於家母牙齒出問題,規勸良久才肯就醫,幾經波折,在愛丁堡找到這家可以全程以廣東話溝通的牙科診所,診所職員 Carman了解後,認為情況緊急,特意安排了快期,隔天便能就診。牙醫 Paul 診症細心,並教導了日常的護理方法及開药,回家後一兩天病情已告好轉,值得推薦。

First thing to say is that Paul does very high quality work. He pays attention to detail, spots trouble before it happens, and is very quick to find an appointment time if you do have pain, and sorts it out effectively every time. Secondly, he is very gentle; he’ll tell you when he’s about to numb you up, but to be honest, that’s about the last you’re aware of it. He checks with you that you’re ok, and is careful to make sure your mouth isn’t open wide any longer than it needs to be. Thirdly, he and Michelle run a very effective and friendly practice; they made every effort to keep open as much as possible during lockdown whilst giving every confidence that they were doing all they could to keep their patients safe. And they still do. I can’t commend them highly enough nor thank them warmly enough for all their care and attention.

I have had an extremely positive experience at Essential Dental Care. While a bit pricey (as with any private dentist), Dr Paul has always been very patient and happy to answer any questions I've had about my treatment. I also have to say that this is the first dental practice I asked about a partial denture who did not immediately try to upsell me to a dental implant. While I do need to eventually get the implant, it can be very costly and Dr Paul understood that I really just needed a cosmetic solution in the interim. Highly recommended.
