Nighttime teeth grinding, or bruxism, is more than a bad habit — it’s a quick path to broken, chipped, fractured, or otherwise damaged teeth. People who grind their teeth at night are also likely to experience migraines and pain in the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint (i.e. the jaw). But it can be difficult to identify whether or not you are dealing with bruxism and TMJ issues on your own. So the question is, are you grinding your teeth at night? If so, what can you do about it? Keep reading for more on teeth grinding from your Capital District dentists, Dr. Shiloh Lieberman and Dr. Erin Page.
