Don’t Let Holiday Stress Get the Best of You: Bruxism Treatment Options

It’s that time of year again where stress can be at an all-time high. That can mean a few things for your oral health. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can become a greater issue. It can also mean changes in diet, which can affect your teeth. Even though the holiday seasons is something to celebrate, that holiday stress can get the best of you. Here’s how to best it with bruxism treatment and facial esthetics.

Bruxism Treatment for the Holidays

Many people suffer from teeth grinding and seek bruxism treatment. Bruxism is generally perceived as a stress-induced condition. Those who suffer from bruxism often wake up in the morning with sore jaws, teeth, and facial muscles. The likely cause of that is teeth grinding taking place at night when they are sleeping.

Because this is a condition related to stress, it can often worsen during the holiday season and other times of high stress. You can do many things to beat the holiday stress, but there are also treatment options for bruxism.

Botox Don't Let Holiday Stress Get the Best of You: Bruxism Treatment Options

What better time to consider bruxism treatment through Botox than the holiday season? It’s fast acting and effective, so any sort of pain and discomfort you’re experiencing can be relieved fast.

Botox essentially helps relax the the facial muscles, making soreness and stiffness subside. By getting a Botox treatment before going to bed, you’ll rest easy without having to wake up to jaw discomfort or pain.

The cosmetic benefits of Botox are also worth mentioning. After getting a Botox injection, you’ll look younger and healthier almost instantly. Botox can last up to a year.

The dangers of Bruxism

Bruxism isn’t just about mouth pain. Teeth grinding can cause many problems in the long run, including worn down and broken teeth, weakened enamel, and crooked teeth. If you do not seek treatment, Bruxism can even wear down teeth enough to where they are only stumps and the second layer of tooth structure is showing.

At that point, bridges, crowns, root canals, dental implants, or dentures may be the only available options, if your dentist cannot save the teeth.
