How to Reduce your Teeth-Grinding Habits
Many people grind their teeth – often at night. Teeth-grinding causes serious damage to teeth so it’s important to reduce this habit.
– Reduce stress by learning to identify triggers; lowering stress can reduce teeth-grinding.
– Try gentle jaw-stretching exercises to reduce any jaw tension.
– Massage can also reduce stress and tension.
While reducing stress can help to reduce teeth-grinding, your dentist may need to assess the need for a custom mouthguard to help protect teeth.
“Teeth grinding can put significant pressure on your teeth, leading to fractures, gum inflammation, and even loose teeth.”
