    Bruxism: A Grinding Problem

    teeth health smile dentistMore commonly known as teeth grinding, bruxism needs to be properly treated when it occurs. Early indicators of bruxism are headaches or a sore jaw in the morning caused by grinding the teeth while asleep. Known causes of bruxism include tobacco, caffeine and alcohol as well as stress, fatigue and sleep disorders but a dentist should be consulted to find the proper cure.

    A dentist will likely recommend a custom-fitted night guard, or splint, which will:

    – Protect the teeth

    – Support the jaw joint

    – Aid in chewing

    As stated in a recent article “many times people have no idea they grind their teeth” and more information can be found at
