Consultations With Plantation Dentist Dr. Scott Barr

Teeth grinding is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you grind your teeth, you may unconsciously clench your teeth together during the day or grind them at night.

Teeth grinding may be mild and may not even require treatment. However, it can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.

Signs and symptoms of teeth grinding may include:

• Teeth grinding or clenching, which may be loud enough to awaken your sleep partner
• Teeth that are worn down, flattened, fractured or chipped
• Worn tooth enamel, exposing deeper layers of your tooth
• Increased tooth sensitivity
• Jaw pain or tightness in your jaw muscles
• Enlarged jaw muscles
• Earache — because of severe jaw muscle contractions, not a problem with your ear
• Headache
• Chronic facial pain
• Chewed tissue on the inside of your cheek
• Indentations on your tongue

Part of Dr. Barr's examination of your mouth helps determine whether you grind your teeth and, if so, whether you are experiencing teeth damage. Cosmetic and restorative dental procedures can help protect and eliminate damage resulting from teeth grinding.
