Teeth Grinding


Woman sleeping and resting head and hands on pillowBruxism (teeth grinding) can cause moderate to severe long-term damage to teeth. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel. Some of the damage that can occur includes:
•  Chipped teeth
•  Tooth flattening and tooth wear
•  Cracked tooth enamel
•  Cracked, loose or broken fillings
•  Tooth loss
•  Gum recession
•  Tooth collapse

Bruxism can even cause a root fracture below the gum line, requiring a root canal and crown to restore the damaged tooth.
