Teeth grinding (bruxism), is a serious condition affecting both children and adults. At Smiles Nambour we often see the results of teeth grinding and we are often called upon to repair teeth that have been damaged by bruxism.
Though most of us grind our teeth now and then due to unpleasant stimuli (e.g. annoying noises) a chronic condition sometimes exists in which patients are not aware of their habit. This condition is called bruxism and it is often not identified by the patient, but by a loved one who notices the noise and grinding.
