The involuntary clenching and grinding of teeth in a para-functional manner (outside of normal function like chewing or eating) is known as bruxism. It might be triggered by stress or anxiety, but it is usually an unconscious action that patients perform while sleeping. While bruxism does not cause pain or discomfort to everyone, it could cause headaches, neck aches, facial pain, earaches, sleep disturbances, jaw pain, and stiffness in some people.
Although there is no specific, clear consensus as to what causes bruxism, the following factors are among those believed to trigger it in susceptible people:
Signs & symptoms of bruxism may include the following:

We provide the latest, most effective, state-of-the-art periodontal treatment to patients through the use of the most amazing LANAP® laser procedure. LANAP is fast, convenient, and requires absolutely no cutting, no stitches, and no lengthy recovery period. Because of the significant equipment expense involved, only the most progressive dentists in America can offer this dramatically improved gum disease treatment. Dr. Olsen is one of the selected handful of dentists who have completed all required coursework with the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry and is certified to provide the clinically proven LANAP procedure.
Patients seeking gum disease treatment can now turn to the new, minimally invasive LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure). By using this new laser technology, a dentist for gum disease can remove diseased tissue without using a scalpel. The LANAP® gum disease treatment works by inserting a small fiber between the tooth and the gum and sending a pulsed laser light to remove all bacteria and infected tissue from the area. The laser is then used again to stimulate the bone and tissue in a way that encourages regrowth. By removing only the infected tissue, LANAP® gum disease treatment reduces bleeding and minimizes recovery time.
Do you experience sore or bleeding gums when brushing or flossing your teeth? Do you have severe pain when chewing food? These symptoms can be the warning signs of gum disease - gingivitis or periodontitis. It is important to address these conditions at the earliest stages to prevent future complications.
