Save Your Teeth From the Consequences of Grinding

Clenching and grinding your teeth damages them in ways that disrupt your everyday life. In the United States, millions of people grind their teeth, yet many do not know they do this. The reason is that they grind and clench while they sleep.

This can cause TMJ disorders if left untreated. You may already have TMJ problems if you are experiencing or more of these symptoms:

  • Jaw or facial pain
  • Feeling like your jaw is stuck or stiff
  • Frequent headaches and earaches
  • Clicking or popping when you open and close your mouth
  • Soreness in your, neck, shoulders, or upper back
