Chronic clenching of your jaw or grinding your teeth can have a serious impact on your daily life. Bruxism can lead to constant headaches and jaw pain. This pain may interfere with your ability to concentrate at work or enjoy social situations. You may also develop a temporomandibular disorder, which affects the joints in your face located in front of your ears. Depending on the severity of your condition, you can do permanent damage to your teeth. Because bruxism can impact your daily life, it is important you receive routine dental care to diagnose and manage this condition.

Constant teeth grinding can disrupt your daily life and cause you dull headaches or jaw soreness. It can also cause temporary or long term problems with your teeth, including teeth that are painful or loose or fractured teeth.
Whether it's determining a way to relax, taking muscle relaxants before bedtime or wearing a mouthguard, it is important to see your dentist to determine the cause and treatment.
