Stress and Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)

Stress can manifest in various oral health conditions such as bruxism or teeth grinding.

If you are a bruxer, you may not even know.

The telltale signs and symptoms of bruxism are:

  • teeth that are flattened, fractured, chipped or loose
  • worn tooth enamel
  • increased tooth sensitivity
  • damage from chewing on your tongue or inside of your cheek
  • pain or soreness in the jaw or face, tired or tight jaw muscles
  • a dull headache originating in the temples; pain that feel like an earache

Over a long period of time, bruxism can cause a lot of irreparable damage.

Depending on the patient an oral appliance or night guard may help.
