Many people are afflicted with teeth grinding—also known as bruxism. While some individuals may do this throughout the day, it is a larger problem at night during sleep. Our dentists know that teeth grinding can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, and irritate your gums. The noise from teeth grinding can also disturb your spouse’s sleep.
