A SMALL ISSUE WITH BIG CONSEQUENCES
Medically known as “bruxism”, teeth grinding occurs when you clench, grind, or gnash your teeth together. Whether you grind your teeth during the day or at night, you may notice signs of sensitive teeth, damaged teeth, a sore jaw, or a headache.
Teeth grinding during the day is often caused by stress or anxiety. Sleep bruxism is harder to diagnose because most people aren’t aware that they grind their teeth at night. This disorder affects the overall quality of your sleep, and you may have symptoms of a stiff neck and a headache when you wake up in the morning.
The long-term consequences of sleep bruxism are significant harm to the teeth (eroded teeth, fillings, crowns, and implants) as well as chronic jaw pain and immobility.
