Teeth grinding can be caused not just by stress and anxiety but by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite or teeth that are missing or crooked. The symptoms of teeth grinding include:

– dull headaches

– jaw soreness

– teeth that are painful or loose

– fractured teeth

Your dentist can fit you with a night guard to protect your teeth during sleep. In some cases, your dentist or physician may recommend taking a muscle relaxant before bedtime. If stress is the cause you need to find a way to relax. Meditation, counselling and exercise can all help reduce stress and anxiety.

Teeth grinding is also common in children. However, because their teeth and jaws change and grow so quickly it is not usually a damaging habit that requires treatment and most outgrow it by adolescence.

Although in adults teeth grinding is often the result of stress, the same is not always true with children. Other possible causes of teeth grinding in children include:

– irritation in the mouth

– allergies

– misaligned teeth

If you’re concerned about your child’s teeth grinding, ask your child’s dentist about the potential causes and, if necessary, the possible solutions. (ADA)

WHAT CAUSES TEETH SENSITIVITY?

Tooth sensitivity is caused when dentin (softer part of the tooth that lies under the tooth enamel) is exposed. For some, it is not just sensitive, but very painful. Some causes may be receding gums, gum disease, teeth grinding, brushing too hard, poor diet or poor oral health care. Some triggers may be eating or drinking cold, sweet or hot foods and beverages and/or breathing in cold air. If you have sensitive teeth be sure to visit your dentist or dental hygienist for more information and the proper treatment.
