What is Teeth Grinding?
Teeth grinding often occurs when we are put under stress and feel anxiety. It is not an intentional act but a subconscious reaction to a stressful situation. Teeth grinding doesn’t always cause immediate symptoms, a lot of people may grind their teeth in their sleep or when they are in deep concentration and never know, but common symptoms:
Should I See My Dentist?
Teeth grinding can be very damaging to your teeth, book an appointment with your dentist if:
Your dentist will be able to inspect your teeth and identify whether you have a grinding problem and give you a solution. In extreme cases, teeth grinding can cause infection and dental abscesses – it is important you go to the dentist as soon as possible if you suspect you have an infection.
Treating Teeth Grinding
As teeth grinding is generally linked to stress and anxiety, you should get in contact with your GP to discuss your stress and take on board their recommendations for stress relief.
Your dentist may also recommend sleeping with a mouth guard to protect your teeth and prevent you wearing your teeth.Back to Blog
