Bruxisminvolves an unconscious grinding, clenching, tapping or tightening of the teeth. "Bruxism" comes from the Greek word "brychein", which means the gnashing of teeth.
Many people will grind their teeth occasionally. However this condition occurs where the person does so excessively and they have lost voluntary control of the behaviour and there are detrimental signs/effects. Bruxism may occur while awake or during sleep and the manner of occurence will affect the approach to treatment.
There can be many unpleasant effects resulting from teeth grinding including: wearing down of the teeth, headaches, pains and spasms in the related muscles, sensitive teeth, disturbed sleep, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, ear ache, jaw pain, to name just some. The unpleasant and loud noises which may result from more active forms of grinding can also disturb other people and possibly cause some tension in relationships.
Research into the causes/origins of bruxism is on-going. There may be a range of factors which contribute to the condition in some individuals, which is why it is important to first seek advice from your dentist and/or doctor. However it is generally believed that in some cases the central cause may be psychological ie: the condition has been precipitated by on-going emotional stress or a specific stressful event. Even if other factors are implicated emotional stress can still be a factor contributing to the condition.
An assessment may include some of the following:
Depending upon the above we will then agree a programme of hypnotherapy to help you to overcome bruxism/teeth grinding. This could include:
The above is not exhaustive but will give you an indication of the general approach. All of the above would involve the use of direct and indirect suggestions, visualisation, imagery, etc. Because we are working together with your unconscious mind we are tapping into resources to help you change which are usually not easily accessible to your conscious mind.
The number of sessions required is likely to be three to four depending upon the degree of severity. Please see the Hypnotherapy Fees/Costs Page for details of fees.
