The recently added treatment is intended to alleviate a patient’s unconscious grinding, clenching, or gnashing of teeth during sleep. Also referred to as bruxism, the condition is related to sleep disorders, stress, or psychological issues.

Dentist 101’s service was expanded to provide Chinatown neighborhood residents suffering from bruxism with viable dental solutions to relieve symptoms, which may include jaw pain, facial soreness, headaches, chipped or fractured teeth, tooth sensitivity, or inner-cheek abrasions.
A fairly common disorder, bruxism affects approximately 10% of adults and up to 15% of children. While there are no known medications to stop teeth grinding, specialized dental appliances such as mouthguards or splints provide effective relief.
Dentist 101 of Houston offers dental mouthguards or ‘nightguards’, which are customized orthotic appliances worn during bedtime that fit over an individual’s lower and upper teeth. The device protects teeth, muscles, and temporomandibular joints (TMJs) from damage caused by the grinding and clenching motion of the teeth and jaw. Mouthguards are made using either hard acrylic or soft rubber materials depending on treatment requirements.
In severe cases, when damage has led to tooth wear, sensitivity, or inability to chew correctly, the practice’s primary dentist, Dr. Jessica Su, performs dental corrections to prevent further dental deterioration. Based on the patient’s condition, the dentist may also recommend tooth reshaping or dental crowns to restore teeth surfaces and normal chewing function.
