    How teeth grinding damages teeth

    teeth health smile dentistTeeth grinding, medically known as bruxism could significantly damage your teeth. Although teeth grinding might seem normal, it can significantly impact your dental health. Here are the effects of teeth grinding.

    Key takeaways:

    – Bruxism causes fracture and chipping, which exposes dental roots to infections.

    – The pressure exerted by the jaw during teeth grinding can wear down your enamel, leading to sensitivity and discolouration.

    – Bruxism causes inflammation and tearing of the gum tissue.

    Visit the dentist for repair of already damaged teeth and search for ways of stopping your grinding.
