How to Keep Teeth From Grinding - What You Need to Know
Studies show that approximately 8 percent of adults and 14 percent of children in Canada grind their teeth at night. Then there those who do so out of habit and/or stress during waking hours, further adding to the prevalence of this condition across the nation. Many people are unaware of the fact that they grind or clench their teeth, and without a dental examination to deliver a call to corrective action, the damage done can be severe. You may be experiencing symptoms at this very moment, which can include fascial pain, persistent headaches, earaches, pain and/or stiffness in the jaw, teeth sensitivity, cracked or fractured teeth, worn down teeth, and sleep disruption. Not only does teeth grinding deliver significant discomfort, it will destroy tooth enamel which is a major concern because once gone, your body cannot repair or replace it as it is not a living tissue. If you are grinding your teeth, you will need to take immediate action to keep this dental health concern from getting worse. Today, Vancouver Dental Specialty Clinic is here with effective advice on how to put an end to the practice.
5 Tips That Can Help You Stop Grinding Your Teeth and Prevent Further Damage
What Destroys Tooth Enamel?
Tooth enamel is the the hardest, most highly mineralized (hydroxyapatite, a compound of calcium and phosphate) substance in your entire body. White to off-white in appearance, semi-translucent enamel forms the outermost and visible layer of each tooth and while it is partially responsible for the color of your teeth, it is absolutely essential to your overall dental health. One defining characteristic of enamel that is of great concern to many, is that once destroyed, your body cannot repair or replace it because it is not a living tissue. Simply put, once your enamel is gone, it's gone for good, and that's a problem. Side effects of enamel loss include mild to extreme sensitivity, tooth discoloration, and significantly increased risk of fracture and decay. While there is no way to replace the lost enamel, there are thankfully treatments that can be applied by a specialist including dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers in addition to staunch self-care regime that includes complete adherence to oral hygiene best practices along with an uptick in Vitamin D and calcium consumption (as allowed by your physician). But while the are treatments available, wouldn't it be better to prevent further enamel loss in the first place? By better understanding what destroys tooth enamel, you can keep future erosion at bay.

Thankfully, there are some simple yet effective measures that you can take to keep the potential for this common dental concern at bay.
