Do you suffer from painful jaws or headaches in the morning? Have your teeth become more sensitive to cold, touch, or other stimuli? If so, you may be one of the millions of people who unknowingly suffer from bruxism.
Although it can occur while you’re awake, jaw clenching and teeth grinding occurs most frequently while we sleep. The force at which the jaws clench together can be up to six times greater during sleep than during waking hours. Consequently, night-time bruxism can cause significant damage to the teeth and surrounding structures.
