Do you frequently wake in the morning with jaw discomfort that you did not have when you went to sleep? Have you been dealing with frequent, unexplained headaches? If you have been noticing any of these symptoms on a regular basis, you may be grinding your teeth. Teeth grinding is when the upper and lower teeth are pushed together with firm pressure and often move back and forth. Bruxism is the technical term for teeth grinding and can happen when you are awake or asleep. If not addressed in a timely fashion, bruxism can lead to serious consequences with your oral health.
