Grinding teeth Bruxism or other wise know as teeth grinding, is a serious dental issue that needs to be address by your dentist. Teeth grinding can wear teeth down over time, as well as chip or crack your teeth. It is most often caused by stress and sleeping habits, which can make this dental issue hard to control.
Avoiding hard foods during the day can reduce pain and damage from this habit. Wearing a mouth guard at night can prevent the damage caused by grinding while sleeping.
