    dentist TMJ teeth grinding,Increasing numbers of women are grinding their teeth in their sleep. Teeth grinding will in most instances be noted by a partner. A dentist can help with this serious problem.

    Key takeaways:

    •   An estimated 6 million people in Britain suffer from bruxism with an increasing number of cases in middle-aged women.
    •     Bruxism may cause problems such as migraines, jaw pain, earaches, and chipped tooth enamel among others.
    •  The major cause of bruxism is stress. Everyday stressors such as juggling jobs, family, childcare and ageing parents are predisposing women to teeth grinding.

    When we sleep, any worries or concerns we have, even if only in our subconscious mind, can lead to clenching, nocturnal grinding and, in some cases, pain and dysfunction of the jaw muscles.

    We have great pleasure in introducing you to the newest dentist to join the team at The Courtyard Clinic – Dr Karina Patel.

    Dr Karina Patel graduated from the prestigious Kings College London. After working for a year as a general dentist in England she spent 4 years in a busy private practice in Australia and developed special interests in Neuromuscular and Advanced cosmetic dentistry.

    During her continuing professional development she met Dr Steve Olmos, a world-renowned expert in TMJ & Sleep Therapy and her passion for helping patients with chronic pain syndromes was realized.

    Dr Karina explains: “I was fascinated by all the research explaining the connection between Cranio-mandibular pain and sleep disordered breathing. It was a connection I could not ignore if I wanted to help my patients in a huge way and improve their quality of life. ”

    Dr Karina will also be bringing Anti-wrinkle treatments such as botox and fillers to the practice as well as joining Dr George in utilising early interception orthodontics (braces) to recognise and treat children at the correct stage to give them the best growth potential.

    The team at TCC are very excited about Dr Karina starting and we can’t wait for you all to meet her!
