Mouth guards for TMJ pain or Bruxism (grinding)
Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws is called bruxism, and often happens as you sleep. Bruxism has many different causes, from stress and anxiety to sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, or teeth that are missing or crooked. Symptoms of possible teeth grinding include:
- Dull headaches
- Jaw soreness
- Teeth that are painful or loose
- Fractured teeth
At Carolina Smile Design, your premier Rock Hill, SC Dentist, we can fit you with a mouth guard to protect your teeth during sleep.
