Teeth grinding, which is also referred to as "bruxism," is a condition that wears the enamel and dentin down on the teeth. Teeth grinding can create a huge problem for oral health. As time goes on, it steadily becomes worse. In the beginning, enamel erodes, and teeth slowly begin to wear away resulting in "attrition." This leads to teeth that are irregularly shaped and goes on to create dental fractures, tooth loss and the necessity for root canals and other restorative dental procedures. If your teeth appear to be flattened, you may be unknowingly grinding your teeth. If you are suffering from the effects of teeth grinding, you will need teeth grinding treatment Los Angeles.
