Can Tooth Grinding Issues Stop Me From Having Dental Implants?

The long-term benefits of dental implants has made it a popular tooth replacement option among our patients here at our Hudson Valley dental practice. However, it should be noted that not everyone is an ideal candidate of implants and certain conditions may affect the success of having dental implants.

One of these conditions is bruxism or frequent tooth grinding. Like how bruxism can promote wear and tear of your biological teeth, it could also do the same thing to your dental implants. Although these implants are durable enough to withstand great forces, frequent tooth grinding has the potential to damage the components of your implant.

Exploring Treatment Options

You do not to worry about not being able to have dental implants  if you have tooth grinding issues. Here at our Hudson Valley dental implant practice, we will recommend treatment options to help reduce bruxism, allowing you to have dental implants at a later date. Wearing mouthguards and employing stress management techniques are just two of the common treatment options that are proven keep the grinding in check.

If you think you have bruxism and would love to have dental implants, let us help you out! Call us at or fill out this contact form to schedule an appointment. We look forward to your visit!
