Ways to Determine if You Grind Your Teeth When You Are Asleep
Posted on 9/25/2019 by Elmwood Dental Group
Grinding your teeth is more common than you think. With millions of Americans dealing with this condition, but not knowing they even do it while they sleep, knowing how to spot the signs of it can help you know if you're one of them. The signs and symptoms may be different in different people. Take note of the symptoms you're experiencing and speak with our dentists regarding what you're experiencing, and we can come up with the best plan of action. Signs That You Grind Your Teeth at NightYou may not notice that you do it, but there are signs that show you grind your teeth while you sleep. These signs are something to pay attention too, because the more you grind your teeth, the bigger the issues are going to be. One of the biggest signs is having teeth that are broken or ground down. This is one of the more serious issues. You need to have these broken teeth fixed and then the grinding addressed so it doesn't keep happening. Tooth sensitivity and pain in the mouth can also be signs that you grind your teeth. Waking up and feeling this is one of the most common times when this happens. Sometimes a person may clench their teeth during the night, and this is not the same as grinding them together. The pain or sensitivity that is felt with each one is different. It is important to differentiate between the two. If you think you may grind your teeth at night, reach out to our office and dental professionals about the treatments that we can offer you. Grinding your teeth can lead to serious issues. Let us take a look and recommend a way to protect and preserve your teeth. Call us today, so we can set up an appointment to have you come out....
