Because grinding often occurs during sleep, many people are unaware that they grind their teeth. However, there are many signs and symptoms of bruxism, or grinding activity. Better yet, there’s a way to prevent the pain from happening.
Ask Yourself the Following Questions:
- Do I wake up with a headache?
- Do I have neck pain?
- Do I have facial pain?
- Do I have shoulder pain?
- Is my jaw sore in the morning?
- Do my teeth and gums hurt?
- Do I have dreams about my teeth breaking or falling out?
These are the most common signs of teeth grinding, and the severity of these symptoms can vary.
