How Tooth Grinding Can Damage Your Smile

Teeth grinding is a common behavior among people of all ages. Known formally as bruxism, it is when someone involuntarily clenches or grinds their teeth. It can have serious consequences, but is treatable at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA.

Teeth grinding can occur during the day or night and can affect children and adults. Some people grind their teeth intermittently, while in others it is regular behavior.

Teeth grinding can be painful and damaging to your smile. It can also have a long-term affect on physical and mental health.

The Dangers of Teeth Grinding

  • Loose teeth
  • Physical pain in the teeth or face
  • Cracked teeth
  • Worn down enamel
  • Alignment issues

The causes of bruxism are not fully understood. It may be a combination of physical, psychological, and genetic factors. The good news is that it is treatable. Stress reduction techniques are helpful, as is wearing a night guard when you sleep.
