Teeth Grinding Macquarie St

Smiling couple on boatClenching or grinding your teeth during the day or night is a common dental problem. At The Dentistry, we want to help relieve the pain involved, which can result in throbbing headaches, jaw pain and tooth damage.

If you’re one of those who suffers from bruxism during the night, you may not even be aware of what you’re doing. Often, your partner will notice you grinding whilst you sleep.

Are You Grinding or Clenching?

There are several common symptoms that people who grind or clench their teeth experience. The signs that you may have bruxism include

  • An aching jaw and sore teeth, especially when you wake
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Headaches
  • Jaw joint and ear pain
  • The sound of teeth grinding during sleep

What Damage Will Grinding Cause?

The constant grinding of your teeth can lead to damaged enamel, the wearing down or even breaking of the teeth and strain on the soft tissue and jaw joint. If you don’t take action, the damage can be permanent. Eventually, your teeth can be lost and require total replacement. The pain you’ll experience from grinding will take a serious toll on your day-to-day activities and health, too.
