One of the most common pathologies among patients and at the same time least diagnosed is bruxism, therefore today we want to inform people about what they are most common signs that can alert us to this problem.
As we know, bruxism is the problem of clenching the teeth unconciously while sleeping and that can lead to the wear of the teeth, misalignment or other pathologies.
Effects of bruxism
Normally, the effects of this disease are often located in sensitive areas of the mouth presenting the following cases:
- Inflammation of the gums
- Pain or sensitivity in the jaw
- Loose teeth and loss of teeth
- Neck pain
These signs include the part of the temporo-mandibular joint and often suffer from an excessive burden causing irremediable pain in the jaw when you wake up as if is it had been chewing for hours at night and it can result in loss of such dental pieces in the most serious cases.
The fundamental problem of this disease is that patients are not aware that they have it until their wear arrives to a serious level. In this sense we recommend that at the minimum sign, go to Birbe’s Clinic, specialists from Barcelona that have been treating this type of dental wear for years.
