How to deal with teeth grinding

Do you grind your teeth when anxious, angry or asleep? This is called bruxism. Unfortunately, teeth grinding can cause many dental complications like enamel erosion, cavities, sensitivity and discolouration.

Key points:

– Morning headaches, sore jaw and a grinding sound at night are all symptoms.

– Teeth grinding will erode the teeth, possibly requiring dental implants, root canals and dentures.

– Avoid caffeinated drinks and practice stress-relieving techniques to relax.

Your dentist can provide a device to help treat your bruxism. Book an appointment with your dentist today and have your teeth checked and treated.
