What Are the Dangers of Teeth Grinding?
If you have been diagnosed with bruxism, or a loved one has noticed you grinding your teeth while you sleep, you should visit a qualified dentist! Grinding your teeth while you sleep can eventually lead to other issues while sleeping, such as snoring, and trouble breathing or sleep apnea. The long-term effects of bruxism can leave an impact beyond sleeping, too. Grinding your teeth while you sleep increases the risk of tooth damage, headaches, and issues with the jaw. Some warning signs that you may be grinding your teeth in your sleep include:
– Disrupted sleep
– Randomly chipped or loose teeth
– Random gum damage on inside of cheek
– Wear and tear of enamel
– Random headaches starting in the temples
– Increased tooth sensitivity or pain
– Face, neck, or jaw pain
– Tight or locked jaw
