No matter how good you are to your teeth all day, there’s a condition that could be harming your teeth: teeth grinding.
Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is just another way our bodies react to stress, but if left unchecked, it can lead to tooth sensitivity38, which can be painful. The damage happens over time: grinding wears away the tooth enamel which can cause dentine exposure. This can result in tooth sensitivity.
Don’t let one problem lead to another. If you suspect you may be grinding your teeth, visit your dentist so he or she can check for signs. This should help both you and your teeth get a good night’s sleep.
