Unsure About Adult Braces? You Have Options

For many people when they’re growing up, braces are just a part of life. Generally, it isn’t uncommon to see pre-teens donning the straightening appliances – once the baby teeth have made way for the adult teeth, that’s often when crowding or spacing issues can occur in the mouth, and braces are put in to solve the problem before it worsens or causes long-term damage.

But teeth can change over time. Those who were blessed with naturally perfect teeth growing up can experience some tooth movement as an adult. Surprisingly, that can also be the issue even for those who had braces at a younger age. Whether it’s the teeth moving inwards and crowding each other, or moving toward the opposite way and causing gaps between them, these can cause oral health issues and should be properly fixed.

A Real Grind – Solutions for Bruxism

After a good night’s sleep, most people would expect to wake up feeling refreshed and rested, ready to take on the day. But for those who have to deal with bruxism, unfortunately that is rarely the case.

Bruxism, the medical term for what most refer to as teeth grinding, is quite common in adults. Often, people don’t even realize they’ve been grinding their teeth throughout the night, if it wasn’t for the resulting jaw pain and sore teeth they’re met with in the morning. Bruxism is thought to be the result of many different possible causes – the main one believed to be stress and anxiety. Additional causes include misalignment of the upper and lower teeth, sleep apnea, snoring and other sleep issues, and even acid reflux.

Luckily, there are ways to deal with teeth grinding. Here are a few that are worth giving a try:
