Why is teeth grinding bad for my oral health?
It is bad because it can lead to TMJ problems and premature wearing/cracking of teeth. Chronic grinding can also damage restorations like fillings, crowns, bridges, and porcelain veneers, and can lead to painful, expensive, time consuming repairs. As mentioned above, a custom night guard is often the treatment of choice of you have a grinding and clenching habit, and most people who have it are not aware of it!.
