Nighttime tooth grinding is a sleep disorder common among adults that can have serious side effects. Also known as “sleep bruxism,” adults who grind their teeth may awake to a headache, sore jaw joints, sore jaw muscles, or chipped and worn teeth. Other times there may be no symptoms, but the noise of your teeth grinding may disrupt your sleep or the sleep of your family members. While tooth grinding occurs more frequently in children, most outgrow it by age twelve. To protect your teeth and prevent tooth grinding and further damage from occurring, we at Carolina Family Dental recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Banik to see if the a custom-made night guard may be right for you.
