Do you grind your teeth? Teeth grinding, called bruxism, can damage your teeth, cause face and jaw pain and headaches. Side effects of teeth grinding include tooth loss, jaw pain, TMJ and facial changes. Over time grinding your teeth can cause you to need crowns or dental implants.
Causes of grinding vary and can include stress, anxiety or sleep apnea. Dr. Mandy Grimshaw can provide custom orthotics to prevent sleep apnea and/or provide mouth guards for protection from grinding. Call 910-692-4450 or visit https://kuhndentist.com/sleep-apnea-treatment/ for more information.
