(HealthDay News) — Tooth grinding can lead to headache, jaw pain and may even crack your teeth.
Stress is a common trigger, especially during sleep.
If you grind your teeth, the American Dental Association suggests:
- Wear a custom-made mouth guard while you sleep.
- Talk to your dentist about the possibility of taking a muscle relaxant at bedtime.
- Get psychological therapy if your stress or anxiety is serious.
