Grinding or Clenching at Nights?
Do you often wake up with a sore jaw or headache? Grinding or clenching during your sleep could be the reason! It can often be related to stress and you may not even realize you’re grinding. Unfortunately grinding, clenching or bruxism can result in chipped or broken teeth, wear on teeth may cause sensitivity or nerve pain. It can also cause pain in your TMJ or jaw leading up to your head and cause painful headaches. An occlusal splint is custom made for your mouth to stop the adverse affects of grinding.
