There are an abundance of problems that can happen when it comes to your teeth, some of which you can’t help.
Grinding your teeth can have a damaging effect on your teeth and can happen for a number of reasons such as stress or anxiety or because of missing or crooked teeth. But because this often happens when you are asleep many people don’t know that it’s happening.
The grinding of your teeth can be very damaging because over a prolonged period of time in can loosen and fracture your teeth and even result in tooth loss. The grinding of your teeth over a long stretch of time can even result in your teeth being worn down to stumps, which can ultimately result in the need for crowns, bridges, implants, root canals and even partial or complete dentures.
It doesn’t just affect your teeth as it can result in problems with your jaw, result in the loss of hearing and in some cases it can result in a change in your facial appearance.
However there are ways to stop you from grinding your teeth such as wearing a mouth guard when you sleep. But there a number of changes that you can make in your day-to-day life to help stop the problem as well, such as avoiding alcohol as this can intensify the grinding problem and cutting back of caffeine filled food and drink like coffee and chocolate.
There are ways to tell if you grind your teeth such as a constant dull headache or a sore jaw.
