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.
