Spare Your Smile From the Harmful Effects of Grinding

Teeth grinding hurts your teeth, and the effects of that can interfere with your daily life. Millions of people in the United States grind their teeth, although they may be unaware that are doing it. You may be someone who grinds and clenches in your sleep.

That behavior can lead to TMJ disorders. You could be developing a TMJ problem if you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms:

  • Feeling like your jaw is stiff or stuck
  • Frequent headaches and earaches
  • Pain in your jaw or face
  • Pain in the upper back, neck, and shoulders
  • Clicking or popping when you open and close your mouth
