Almost everyone grinds their teeth once in a while, but when it becomes excessive, it can cause problems. Chronic teeth grinding is called bruxism and can cause damage and discomfort to the teeth and jaw.
Our team at Hope Mills Dental offers treatment for teeth grinding to help ease the symptoms you deal with every day. The treatment we offer can contribute to better sleep, less pain on a daily basis, and a healthier smile.
Signs of Bruxism
It’s highly likely that you may not even know if you grind your teeth on a regular basis, especially since teeth grinding often happens during sleep.
These are some signs that your teeth grinding habit is doing harm:
- Loose teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Loud grinding while sleeping (observed by others)
- Agitated sleep
- Pain in the face, jaw, and neck
- Regular, dull headaches
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Tightness in the jaw
