Grinding Your Problems?
People who grind or clench their teeth at night, suffer from a condition called bruxism. The condition can happen at different stages of your life. However, the severity of the problem can depend on the individual.
Symptoms of the problem include facial pain or fatigue, especially in the jaw region due to the clenching of the muscles. It is also common to wake up with a headache if you suffer from bruxism. Your teeth can also become sensitive, painful or loose.
This happens as a result of emotional or physical stress. Physical stress can stem from fitness, nutrition, overall health or sleeping habits. Emotional stress can include financial, work or relationship troubles.
Treatment options can be as simple as implementing a relaxing routine before bed. For other treatment options, it is best to seek the help of your dentist. A night guard may be a good solution or specific jaw exercises.
