Teeth Grinding/ Bruxism

Treating Patients for Over 20 Years

Are you grinding your teeth at night? Teeth grinding, also known as "bruxism" usually happens to people as they sleep. In adults, teeth grinding is caused by sleep disorders, stress and anxiety, an abnormal bite, crooked or missing teeth. While it may seem like just a nightly nuisance, continuous teeth grinding can have damaging effects and lead to:

  • Headaches
  • Tooth fractures
  • Jaw soreness
  • Painful teeth
  • Loose teeth

If you are grinding your teeth, Dr. Mark Weitzman can fit you with a form-fitting mouth guard that will protect your teeth at night, while you sleep. If you suspect that your teeth grinding is a result of stress, we may recommend that you find ways to relax. For some patients, yoga and exercise can help reduce the effects of stress and anxiety.

We have been treating patients for teeth grinding for more than 20 years, and our commitment to superior quality dental care has earned us a reputation as one of Ventura's top dental offices. We have earned notable distinctions such as "Top Dentist" in Ventura County, and "Best of Ventura County."

Teeth Grinding in Adults & Children

Teeth grinding is common in people of all ages, including young children. While teeth grinding in adults is often linked to stress and anxiety, this is not typically the case with children. The good news is that teeth grinding in children is not usually a harmful habit and they usually outgrow it in adolescence.

Children often grind their teeth due to allergies, misaligned teeth, or mouth irritation. If your child's teeth grinding has you concerned, let us know and we'll identify the causes and explain his or her treatment options.

If you are grinding your teeth, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Mark Weitzman, a premier Ventura dentist!

    I recently went to Dr. Mark for a broken molar repair. Upon arrival I was impressed with the updated office and it's sterile feel.

  • “Best Hygienist”
    Hi Mark, your hygienist is great. VERY good bedside manner; was sensitive to my sensitivities with regard to those hook things" she uses to scrape plaque. Let's get together over this implant issue. No hurry, and sooner the better, huh? Would you ask someone there to email me an estimate for the work still to be done, please. We're in our "slow" time, and Vic is asking that we pay some meager attention to budgeting, so...Thanks, and have a great vacation.
