Teeth grinding is often referred to as “bruxism”. While stress can sometimes cause this condition, it could also be a result of misaligned teeth. Seeing a dentist is prudent to understand the mechanics behind bruxism.
– A misaligned jaw can increase the chances of grinding your teeth.
– You may experience pain and even headaches as a result.
– Over time, you risk wearing down your enamel and developing cavities if this condition is not treated.
”You should never wait to seek help this worrying habit that could be a symptom of an improper bite!”
