Bruxism
in Turkey

Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding or clenching, is a condition where you unconsciously grind or clench your teeth, either during sleep (sleep bruxism) or while awake (awake bruxism).

Sleep bruxism is often linked to other sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea, and can lead to various dental health issues, including tooth wear, fractures, and jaw pain.

Awake bruxism may be related to emotions such as anxiety, stress, anger, or a coping strategy during deep concentration.

Causes and Risk Factors

The exact cause of bruxism is not always clear, but it is generally linked to a combination of physical, psychological, and genetic factors. Stress and anxiety are significant triggers, especially for awake bruxism. Other risk factors include:

Age: Bruxism is more common in young children but can occur at any age.

Personality Type: Having a hyperactive, aggressive, or competitive personality can increase the risk.
Medications and Substances: Certain psychiatric medications, smoking, caffeine, and alcohol can exacerbate bruxism.

Family History: Bruxism can run in families, indicating a genetic predisposition.

Treatment and Management

While there’s no definitive cure for bruxism, several treatments can reduce its frequency, lessen the damage to teeth, and alleviate symptoms. Treatment approaches include:

Dental Approaches: Dental guards or splints can be used to prevent damage to the teeth and reduce the noise of teeth grinding.

Behavioral Therapies: Stress management, mindfulness meditation, and biofeedback can help manage the underlying stress or psychological factors contributing to bruxism.

Medications: In some cases, medications like muscle relaxants, Botox injections, or specific drugs may be used temporarily to relieve pain or muscle tightness.

Preventive Measures for Bruxism

Preventing bruxism involves lifestyle changes and awareness. Reducing stress, practicing good sleep habits, and avoiding stimulating substances in the evening can help. Regular dental checkups are essential to detect signs of bruxism early.
