Tooth grinding

Tooth grinding, particularly at night, is very common, affecting up to 50% of people. It can cause sore facial muscles, headaches, ear aches and neck pain, and can also cause the teeth to become ground down and more sensitive.

Stress and anxiety can be a major cause - if you can reduce your stress levels you will often see a dramatic change in your tooth-grinding habits. If this doesn’t work, we may well be able to help, so do make an appointment to see us.
