A majority of people who grind their teeth during sleep are not even aware they do so.
Teeth grinding can damage your teeth and jaws,create an insufficient sleep quality, bring joint or muscular discomfort, and leave you with a headache the next day. Prolonged teeth grinding can lead to tooth decay and sensitivity while also permanently damaging your TMJ(Temporomandibular Joint). Dentists at Grove Dental Associates aim to fix teeth grinding in patients by prescribing a custom mouth guard. Mouth guards are specially made and fit to protect the teeth from grinding, interrupt the habit, and prevent further damage to the teeth and TMJ.
