Tooth grinding is a surprisingly common condition that may remain untreated for years. The end results can include headaches, pain in the jaw and an erosion of enamel that will eventually require treatment by a dentist.
There are still several symptoms which hint that this condition may be present. A handful of the most common include:
– An unusual soreness in the jaw after waking.
– Teeth that are sensitive for no apparent reason.
– Fractures in the surface enamel or other abrasions that cannot be explained.
“People grind their teeth during the day, at night or both.” Talk to your dentist to get treatment for tooth grinding.
