Teeth grinding is mostly caused by stress and anxiety and it often occurs during sleep.
Because grinding often occurs during sleep, most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. However, a dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up is a telltale symptom of bruxism. Many times people learn that they grind their teeth by their loved one who hears the grinding at night. Excessive wear on your teeth can be noticed.
Chronic teeth grinding can result in a fracturing: loosening, or loss of teeth. The chronic grinding may wear teeth down to stumps.
We fit you with Night Guard It is a removable custom-fitted plastic appliance that fits between the upper and lower teeth to prevent them from grinding against each other.
