We all lead very stressful lives nowadays. Stress can affect us in many ways including habitual grinding of your teeth.
For many this is a passing thing and will cause no damage.
For many, however, it can cause significant pain of your jaw joint and the muscles used in controlling the jaw. It may also cause damage to your teeth such as wearing them down or causing fractures.
This is known as Temporo Mandibular Jaw Disfunction Syndrome (or TMJ problems).
Prevention is very simple, by wearing a nightguard when you sleep. This comfortable device is custom made and prevents the grinding action and therefore all the side effects it causes.
