A Quick Look at Bruxism
Whether resulting from stress or bad habits, grinding our teeth (known as bruxism) can lead to some serious issues. What are some common symptoms associated with bruxism and when should you see your dentist for further advice?
– Bruxism will progressively damage the enamel of your teeth if it is not corrected.
– Your gums may also become affected, causing symptoms of gum disease or gingivitis.
– If you chip a tooth, immediately speak with your dentist.
