If you’ve been waking up with headaches, sensitive or sore teeth, or with aching jaws, chances are you may be suffering from bruxism, also known as teeth grinding.
Usually brought on by stress, studies have shown that over half the population grinds its teeth, typically at night. This grinding may go unnoticed until the effects are severe enough to be spotted by your dentist. Some signs of bruxism include chipped teeth, inflamed gums, and cracked teeth, particularly filled molars.
If these symptoms are present, you may want to consider a custom-fitted mouth guard for grinding teeth from Dawn Morehead Dentistry.
