Teeth Grinding Can Damage Your Teeth
Many of us CLENCH or GRIND our teeth from time to time. But, if you’re doing this frequently you can be damaging your teeth. Teeth grinding that occurs when you are asleep is particularly damaging.
The technical term for continual teeth grinding and jaw clenching is Bruxism, which may be caused by stress.
More than 25% of adults suffer from bruxism.
Teeth grinding usually happens during sleep, so many people may be unaware of their behavior. A sore jaw is a common sign of bruxism. Your dentist may notice flatter tips on the top of your teeth.
At Comfort Dental Care of Brookline, our experienced team can diagnose the signs of bruxism and fit you with a custom night guard.
Some people avoid wearing mouth guards because they’re uncomfortable. They get in the way of speech and may hamper breathing. A poorly fitting night guard can also put stress on the jaw.
