If you grind or clench your teeth during your sleep, you can be causing serious damage to your teeth. Unfortunately, tooth grinding or bruxism is a subconscious behavior that most people experience during their sleep but can also occur during the waking hours.

Sore facial muscles
Headaches and earaches
Fractured teeth and restorations
Recession of gums
