Do You Grind Your Teeth?

MischenkogrindingDid you now that over ten million people in the United States suffer from a disorder known as bruxism? Patients with bruxism grind their teeth or clench their jaws on a regular basis, often at night. Over time, this disorder can damage teeth and increase the risk of other issues developing such as TMJ disorder. Do you grind your teeth? Should you see a doctor to discuss treatment options?

Warning Signs of Bruxism

  • Toothaches or tooth sensitivity
