Bruxism ?: You may be grinding your teeth at night. A bruxism appliance may be warranted. Please see a local dentist for a proper diagnosis.

Night Bruxism: also called night time clenching, may cause pain in the tooth wear, teeth movement and even damage or break teeth. Currently, no therapy has been proven effective in treating sleep bruxism. See your dentist for night guard fabrication for teeth protection. Good luck.
