In brief: Teeth grinding

Grounding your teth during the night can cuse pain, headaches, wear and break teeth.
It is increased during times of high stress, related to your bite and sleep disorders. See a dentist for an evaluation and possibly a night guard.

In brief: Teeth grinding

Night teeth grinding or bruxism does not usually cause pain or harm, but when teeth grinding occurs on a regular basis the teeth can be damaged or become painful.
Rec.: see an orofacial pain specialist for stress control, sleep hygiene and night guard fabrication. You also can visit your dentist for night guard.
