Teeth Grinding – What Can I Do?

Teeth grinding is often linked to stress-related issues, but it can also be caused by sleep disorders. Also known as bruxism, teeth grinding most often occurs during the night while you sleep. It can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw and may be connected to TMD pain. One possible treatment for teeth grinding is to be fitted for a mouthguard that will protect your teeth while you are sleeping. In more serious cases, other treatment options may be discussed with your dentist. For more information, contact Dr. Johnson at 701-258-1321.
