Signs of teeth grinding can often be detected through digital x-rays. Tooth enamel that is worn more than normal or a cracked tooth or cusp typically indicates that teeth grinding is causing damage to the tooth. Some patients grind their teeth during the day or night without even realizing it. The jaw muscles are some of the strongest muscles in the body, giving them the ability to do a lot of damage over time to your jaw and teeth. If you suffer from teeth grinding, it’s important to address your habit before it leads to more pain or damage.
Signs Of Teeth Grinding May Include:
- Waking with a Sore Jaw
- Morning Headaches
- Popping or Clicking Jaw
- Sensitive Teeth
- Tooth Pain
- Chipped or Flattened Teeth
