What should I do if I grind my teeth at night?

Some of the signs and symptoms you may experience from grinding your teeth may consist of: sensitive teeth, cracked teeth, mobility of teeth, soreness of facial muscles after sleep, and temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) pain. There are several theories to the causes of teeth grinding, including stree, neuromuscular disorders, and chemical imbalance. Treatment for night grinding requires a proper assessment of your oral health, including your gum, bone, teeth, TMJ and lifestyle by your dentist. Treatment acrylic night guard to be worn during sleep, muscle relaxation medications, and bite adjustment to maximize proper occlusal equilibrium. Call us today to book an appointment!
