Teeth grinding remedies

An online, crowdsourced and curated overview of treatments that can help with teeth grinding (bruxism). We hope cureteethgrinding.com gives you your 😊 back!

We grouped the treatments in the following categories (according to the taxonomy used in [1]):

Psychology

Bruxism is often associated with stress, with specifically emotional stress and anxiety to be the main triggering factor. To avoid bruxism, these causes must be dealt with.

Pills

Drugs, stimulants, diets, can cause bruxism, or help you reduce the symptoms

Physical therapy

Bruxism is caused by increased jaw-muscle activity, as such specific muscle orientated treatments like stretching, trigger point treatment, dry needling can help treat it.

Plates

Occlusal splints (aka ‘dental guards’) work by mechanically protecting the teeth. They typically do not reduce the bruxing activity itself.

Others
