What Happens In Bruxism?

There are three ways a person can lose teeth; decay, gum disease and the way teeth naturally come together, also referred to as one’s bite.

It is easy to understand the decay and gum disease process, and easy to prevent with preventive care.

Although without good oral health, decay causes holes in teeth, while people with gum disease have bleeding gums and disappearing bone.

Bite problems are more difficult to see and understand, but there is no doubt that if the teeth don’t come together correctly and the person is a grinder or clincher, something has to give.

Under the right circumstances, extreme wear can occur over a short period of time. Finding the correct bite is absolutely essential for any long-lasting results.
