More often than not, people who grind their teeth are unaware of it. If you’re waking up in the morning with jaw pain, or headaches, there is a good chance you are putting way too much stress on your teeth, muscles and temporomandibular joint through the night. This condition is also known as bruxism, and is extremely common. A night guard is often recommended in such cases.
You may also notice notching of teeth at the gum line, recession, and sensitivity. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, get in touch with your dentist.
