Do you or someone in your family grind their teeth? Did you know you could be grinding your teeth and not even know it? At our dental office in Ramsey, we see so many side effects of teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) on teeth of patients of all ages. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about grinding your teeth and what we can do to stop the damage to your smile.
What You Need to Know About Bruxism
Your Ramsey dentist can tell if you grind your teeth just by looking at them. Grinding usually wears teeth down, causing cracks and chips that can lead to further damaged or broken teeth. That’s why it’s important to address any bruxism issues you may have as soon as possible so your smile stays healthy for a lifetime.
Some additional signs that your grinding or clenching your teeth can also include:
– Jaw joint pain or discomfort
– Facial pain
– Headaches or migraines
– Jaw muscle contractions
– Broken restorations
– Tooth sensitivity
– Enamel loss
– Damaged gums
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, there could be a good chance that you’re one of the nearly 30 million people who grind their teeth either during sleep or even subconsciously as you go about your day.
