Do you wake up with a stiff, tired jaw? Are your teeth sensitive to cold? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, you may be grinding or clenching your teeth when sleeping. A condition called “bruxism” over time can wear down your natural tooth enamel. We have several options available to help reduce the risk of wear on your natural teeth. Ask your hygienist or dentist at your next appointment if you would like more information on treatments available for bruxing or clenching.
