Why do I grind my teeth?
Grinding and clenching, or bruxism, can be caused by muscle tension, stress, and a dental bite that is not aligned properly. It often happens at night when we are not aware of it. There may be pain in the neck, jaw and shoulders in the morning. At Woodin Creek Dental we will do a thorough exam to see if the misaligned bite can be corrected, and an occlusal splint will often be recommended as part of the treatment plan.
