Diagnosis includes additional studies.
Bruxism requires a 3D scan of the teeth. With its help, we obtain a digital impression of the teeth and make an individual protective cap.
In addition, a digital impression gives a lot of information about the current state of the teeth: the presence of wear, supercontacts, the state and height of the bite, etc.
Diagnosis of the TMJ and facial muscles allows you to determine which muscles are spasmodic, where there is an uneven tone. The condition of the jaw joints is also checked, the presence / absence of TMJ dysfunction is determined. Thus, we find out how far the problem has advanced, whether the jaw joints are affected.
Additionally, periodontal screening and diagnosis of therapeutic problems (caries, pulpitis, periodontitis, etc.) are carried out. This information is necessary to draw up a correct treatment plan.
