Feb 3, 2024


Welcome to Teeth At Tiong Bahru, the leading destination for all your dental needs. Our team of experienced dentists and orthodontists are dedicated to providing high-quality general dentistry services to cater to your specific requirements.

The Importance of Tooth Surface Loss and Bruxism Management

At Teeth At Tiong Bahru, we understand the significance of tooth surface loss and bruxism management in maintaining optimal dental health. Tooth surface loss, also known as tooth erosion or dental erosion, is the irreversible loss of dental hard tissue caused by non-bacterial acids. Bruxism, on the other hand, refers to the habitual grinding or clenching of teeth.

Understanding Tooth Surface Loss

Tooth surface loss can occur due to various factors, including dietary habits, acid reflux, gastrointestinal disorders, and aggressive tooth brushing. This condition can lead to tooth sensitivity, weakened tooth structure, and an increased risk of tooth decay. Our expert dentists specialize in diagnosing and managing tooth surface loss, ensuring that your natural teeth are protected and preserved.

The Effects of Bruxism on Dental Health

Bruxism can significantly impact your dental health if left untreated. The excessive grinding and clenching can wear down your tooth enamel, leading to tooth fractures, muscle pain, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), headaches, and even tooth loss. Our skilled orthodontists are here to help you effectively manage bruxism through tailored treatment plans.

Comprehensive Tooth Surface Loss and Bruxism Management

At Teeth At Tiong Bahru, we offer a comprehensive range of services to manage tooth surface loss and bruxism effectively. Our approach focuses on early detection, prevention, and appropriate intervention to ensure optimal oral health. Here are some of the techniques and treatments we provide:

Dental Examinations and Diagnosis

Our experienced dentists perform thorough dental examinations to assess the extent of tooth surface loss and bruxism-related damage. Through a combination of clinical evaluation and imaging techniques, we can accurately diagnose the condition and create a personalized treatment plan.

Custom-Fit Dental Mouthguards

We offer custom-fit dental mouthguards that are tailored to your specific needs. These mouthguards act as a protective barrier, preventing further tooth surface loss and reducing the impact of bruxism on your teeth and jaw joint. Our orthodontists ensure a precise fit to maximize comfort and effectiveness.

Restorative Dentistry

If tooth surface loss has already caused significant damage to your teeth, our skilled dentists can restore them using durable and natural-looking dental restorations. From fillings to crowns, we employ the latest techniques and materials to enhance both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Oral Hygiene Education

Proper oral hygiene practices play a crucial role in managing tooth surface loss and bruxism. Our team provides comprehensive oral hygiene education, guiding you on the best brushing techniques, appropriate toothpaste selection, and lifestyle modifications to minimize further damage.

Stress Management and Behavioral Therapy

Stress and anxiety often contribute to the development and exacerbation of bruxism. Our professionals understand the crucial link between mental well-being and dental health. We offer stress management techniques and behavioral therapy to help you alleviate stress and manage bruxism effectively.
