Do you know whether the symptoms you’re experiencing are related to bruxism disorder? If you don’t already know, bruxism is a functional issue that causes you to grind your teeth (or to clench your teeth) chronically. You may do it during the day without realizing it or in your sleep. As a result, you may need to rely on symptoms to let you know something isn’t quite right. (Of course, coming in for your checkups is also a very safe bet, as we can typically detect the problem before you will). Let’s begin with some common symptoms that may occur.

Granted, you always have the option to decide whether or not you’re planning on going through with wisdom teeth removal. However, as you may know, there are circumstances in which we strongly urge you to do so. Why? Well, if your tooth is impacted, is going to damage to surrounding teeth, or is causing serious oral health concerns, it’s best for it to come out! However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, you’re not having a serious problem and, as a result, we will not necessarily suggest removal. Find out more!
