Headaches… jaw pain… tooth pain… fractured or unevenly worn teeth – all can be caused by grinding your teeth at night. You probably aren’t even aware of doing it, but your spouse may hear you. Or you may be a silent grinder, but you’re grinding.
Grinding can be caused by:
Missing or crooked teeth
Getting to the root of the problem is critical for your physical, emotional and oral health. Until you determine the cause and cure it, you can protect your teeth and reduce or eliminate the pain grinding causes you by sleeping with a night guard. Fox Valley Family Dentistry can custom-fit a night guard for your mouth and give you a restful night’s sleep free of grinding and pain.
