Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding and clenching can be a problem and sometimes you may not even know you are doing it.

Teeth grinding is also known as Bruxism. There are many factors that can contribute to this condition but some things can exacerbate the symptoms :

  • Alcohol/Drug use
  • Anxiety
  • Certain medications
  • Extreme exhaustion
  • Stress
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Smoking
  • Missing or crooked teeth
  • Overbite or abnormal bite
  • Snoring

It has been found that if you suffer from a sleeping disorder such as sleep apnoea, you are more likely to grind your teeth.
You may need to have a night guard that you sleep with. This is made to protect your teeth and jaw from damage.
