Bruxism: If your Dentist has put you into braces and you are still grinding your teeth, perhaps it's time to see a specialist Orthodontist. Important that’d the reason(s) you grind are determined and then those reasons are treated. Once cause has been determined, appropriate treatment can be administered.
