You already know that teeth grinding is bad for your oral health. It can cause breaking and cracking. It can increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and infections, too.
You may not be aware of other signs that you are a teeth grinder, however. Many people do this in their sleep, which can lead to TMJ disorders and other problems such as:
- Jaw pains
- Jaw stiffness
- Facial soreness
- Pain in your neck, shoulders, or upper back
If you frequently have one or more of these symptoms, schedule an appointment with one of our dentists in San Antonio, TX. Call Cosmetic Dental Associates at 210-951-4444 for a consultation. You can also schedule online.
