TIGHTENING TEETH PROBLEM TURK DENTIST SUGGESTIONS

.
.
IN THE PANDEMIC, THE PROBLEM OF TIGHTENING TEETH ALSO INCREASED
.

Turkey Medicals member in Antalya Otolaryngologist Professor Doctor is reassuring. The stress and anxiety caused by the coronavirus pandemic increase the problem of tooth tightening (bruxism) during sleep. Dr. said the following about the issue.
.
Gnashing of teeth, or bruxism as it is called in medical parlance, is a problem usually seen in people who experience intense stress. Bruxism is beginning to be seen more widely with increased anxiety and stress during the pandemic. Dr. ‘This problem can cause jaw joint (temporomandibular joint) discomfort and ear pain,’ Prof. Dr. said and gave the following information.

GRINDING TEETH CAN CAUSE EAR PAIN
.
Grinding of teeth, especially during sleep, can lead to wear on the jaw joint. As a result, ear pain may occur. This pain can be exacerbated from time to time and can last for a long time. The pain is caused by a neighbor with the Joint, there is no disease of the ear itself. Headache can also be added to ear pain.

PATIENTS ARE NOT AWARE IN STRESS AND ANXIETY
.
During the pandemic period we are in, we observe an increase in stress and anxiety disorder throughout society. Along with increased stress and anxiety disorder, the problem of grinding teeth is also on the rise. A lot of people don’t realize they’re clenching their teeth in their sleep! Those who see these people asleep can express that they have problems grinding teeth.
.
.
IT CAN MOVE FORWARD IF ACTION IS NOT TAKEN
.
A progressive degeneration of the jaw joint may occur if the problem of tooth grinding is not diagnosed early and precautions are not taken. As a result, pain in the jaw and ear, as well as the movement of the mouth, the ‘click sound’ may begin to come from the joint. Degenerations in the structure of teeth can also be added to this. In more advanced cases, we may also encounter restrictions on the opening of the mouth.
.
.
PRIMARY MEASURE: NIGHT RECORD
.
The first measure in patient who squeaks his teeth is the night plaque, which the Turkey dentist will recommend. This plaque, which will be specially prepared for the upper teeth by removing the mold of the teeth, is usually a sufficient measure to protect the patient’s jaw joint during the night. In addition, it is important to take measures to reduce the load on the jaw joint, such as eating fruits such as apples not by biting, but by breaking them into small pieces with a knife, not chewing gum, not consuming hard nutrients.
.
An alternative to night plaque in treatment is the application of Botox to the masseter muscle. By applying Botox to the massetere, which is the chewing muscle, you are able to reduce the strength of the muscle and thus the load riding the insertion. Once the effect of Botox has passed, the process can be repeated. In advanced cases, jaw surgery applications, joint arthroscopy may also be on the agenda. Psychiatric support can also be useful for patients who have difficulty coping with stress or have anxiety disorders.
