There are people of all ages who share a common “bad habit” that can negatively affect their oral health over time. This is known as bruxism, which is the proper name for teeth grinding. Bruxism is a typical reaction to stress, and most patients who suffer from it typically experience the effects at night, gradually damaging their teeth, facial muscles, and oral tissues as they sleep. At Flawless Smile Dentistry, our team wants to help you overcome this frustrating condition. Contact our Claremore, OK practice today to schedule your first appointment with our doctors!


There are several sources that can cause the development of bruxism over time. Common causes include the daily presence of stress, constant anxiety, teeth that are misaligned, bad posture, poor diet, and lacking sleeping habits. People who struggle with bruxism may also experience common biting habits, including fingernails, lips, and pencils. Routine symptoms include:
Bruxism can negatively affect much more than just your teeth – it can lead to the development of TMJ disorder over time, which causes severe pain to the patient. Eating disorders, depression, and insomnia may also form as a result of untreated bruxism. That’s why our doctors will strive to diagnose and treat this potentially harmful condition as early on as possible.


During an in-depth evaluation, our doctors will review the state of your oral health to determine if there are any tell-tale indications that point towards the presence of bruxism. If so, our team can create a custom-made oral appliance (also known as a nightguard or splint) that can be worn comfortably as patients sleep, minimizing aggravating contact between teeth. For some patients, this will be the only treatment they need to fully relieve their symptoms; other cases may require the help of additional therapy options.

Other solutions to bruxism include facial relaxation, massage, the application of ice or heat, stress management, or a diet composed of softer foods. If your smile has suffered damage because of bruxism, our doctors can also provide quality restorative solutions that rebuild the strength and function of certain teeth.

So we found this dentistry and thought we check it out. The staff are very nice, they give you a tour and informative of the dentists and the services they provide. My daughter felt comfortable and noticed the differences from our past dentist. So if she’s all in, I’m going to use the services as well. They were able to get me an initial assessment immediately following my daughters cleaning. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone who is searching for a more detailed and skilled dentistry!

      Each visit with Flawless Smile is so pleasant. The front office staffers all greet me with a friendly “Hello” and smile. I have never waited more than 5 or 10 minutes to get taken back to the dental area by another smiling staff member. I am a different person because of my treatment at Flawless Smile. Different meaning I’m no longer depressed because I don’t have to hide my smile every minute of the day. It’s amazing how being able to smile changes every aspect of my life.

        I have dentures that are screwed in and I was having to go to either Kansas City or Oklahoma City from Tulsa to get them worked on fallstona was able to put these in and keep them clean for me and it's a lot closer than a two or four hour drive. Everyone I've met at the staff and the doctor is great I would recommend this especially if you're looking for dentures.

          I really felt that all employees/staff were more than good to me. Made me feel like family almost and really seemed to care. They definitely wanted me to get the best service possible and I'm excited to go back again. My next appointment will be getting 7 teeth pulled and instead of feeling nervous as I usually do, I feel completely ready to get it done and have total faith in the dentist there to do good work. I know I'm in good hands!
