Beat Bruxism MP3



Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is an anxiety related habit which the sufferer is often unaware of until their dentist alerts them to the danger of their teeth literally crumbling under the pressure. Often nocturnal, bruxism cannot be controlled by simply deciding to stop. This session helps interrupt the subconscious response and relieve the stress that causes it.

One of the most common causes of bruxism is stress. When we are under stress, our bodies release hormones that can cause muscle tension in the jaw. This tension can lead to grinding and clenching of the teeth. Other causes of bruxism include misaligned teeth, sleep disorders, and certain medications.

The symptoms of bruxism can vary from person to person. Some people may experience headaches or earaches, while others may notice that their teeth are becoming worn down or sensitive. If left untreated, bruxism can lead to more serious problems such as jaw pain, gum recession, and even tooth loss.

Fortunately, there are several treatments available for bruxism. One of the most common treatments is a mouthguard or splint. These devices can help to protect the teeth from grinding and clenching, and can also help to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with bruxism.

In addition to mouthguards and splints, there are several lifestyle changes that can help to reduce the symptoms of bruxism. These include reducing stress levels through exercise or meditation, avoiding caffeine and alcohol before bedtime, and practicing good sleep hygiene.

If you suspect that you may be suffering from bruxism, it is important to speak with your dentist. Your dentist can help to diagnose the condition and recommend the appropriate treatment for your individual needs.
