How Grinding Your Teeth Can Affect Your Dental Implants

Posted By nextsmiles nextsmiles     September 9, 2021    


One of the most common reasons to grind your teeth is a mouth-related disorder. Teeth grinding of any sort can cause problems with your natural teeth. But it can also affect your dental implants that are part of the All-on-4® procedure.

What Causes Teeth Grinding?

Teeth grinding, a condition also known as bruxism, causes excessive teeth movements by clenching or grinding them. Teeth grinding can also occur during sleep, although it is usually of no concern as long as it’s not accompanied by pain. Up to 40% of adults grind their teeth due to:

  • Stress
  • Poor sleeping habits
  • Anxiety
  • Illness
  • Certain medications

 Signs of Teeth Grinding

Have you ever wondered if you grind your teeth during the night? If you can’t hear yourself, it can be hard to tell if you are grinding your teeth. The following are the signs of teeth grinding: 

  • Wear and tear on teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Problems talking and eating
  • Bruxism triggers headaches

Teeth Grinding Remedies

Do you suffer from teeth grinding or clenching at night whilst sleeping? Maybe you’re even suffering the consequences, such as aching jaws, headaches and earaches. Teeth grinding can also interfere with your dental implant surgery. The following are five remedies for curing grinding teeth and reducing the pains and risks associated with it.

  • Use a night guard to reduce pain and pressure
  • Try some natural remedies such as massaging the area
  • Get some rest and avoid stressful situations
  • Consult a doctor in case there is no improvement of symptoms
  • Watch your diet and avoid heavy meals or spicy food before going to bed

Understand That Grinding Teeth Can Affect Your All-on-4®

Grinding your teeth can significantly affect the outcome of your all-on-4® procedure. The grinding can cause tiny cracks in dental implant material. As a result, you may not be able to use your implants as intended. It would help if you always let your dentist know that you grind your teeth before starting the All-on-4® procedure.

Consistent Grinding Of Your Teeth Can Put You At High Risk Of Losing Your Dental Implants

If you are not seeing your dentist regularly, it can put your implants at risk of falling out or being damaged – even if you get another set. This is why it is essential to set aside some time to either see your dentist or schedule an urgent care appointment.
