Rockville, MD Dentist Offers Non-Invasive Treatment for Bruxism

Dr. Mary Ziomek provides relief to those suffering from jaw pain, tension headaches, and facial pain


Rockville, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/02/2016 --Rockville residents are praising Dr. Mary Ziomek at All Smiles Dentistry for her effective, non-invasive treatment of bruxism. By prescribing custom night guards, Dr. Ziomek is able to help patients find relief from the jaw pain, tension headaches, and facial pain often associated with teething clenching or grinding.

Bruxism occurs when someone grinds or clenches their jaw, primarily during sleep, and when it's chronic, patients suffer face and jaw pain, headaches, and damage to the teeth and enamel. Because of how common bruxism is, Dr. Ziomek recommends that anyone suffering from symptoms prevent permanent damage by wearing a custom nightguard.

After being diagnosed with bruxism, Dr. Ziomek will take an impression of the bottom and top rows of teeth to create a custom nightguard that is flexible, comfortable, and customized for each patient's mouth. It is a quick and painless process and all that is left is for the patient to wear his or her guard every night.

Although some may find it cumbersome to wear the guard each night, it is a critical step in preventing damage from bruxism. In addition to regularly wearing their night guard, patients should pay attention to what aggravates their symptoms. Triggers may include alcohol, caffeine, tension and/or stress.

While some cases of bruxism are obvious, not everyone is aware they are grinding or clenching their teeth, which is why regular checkups are critical to dental health. By watching for symptoms or triggers and seeking medical help from Dr. Ziomek, patients can trust that they will find relief from their bruxism.

Dr. Ziomek is currently accepting new patients at her Rockville office. In addition to treating bruxism, she offers an array of services including regular cleanings and fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, and more.
