Millions of Americans suffer from teeth grinding. If you wake up with a stiff neck, sore jaws, or headaches, you might be clenching or grinding your teeth while you sleep. Because your jaws are incredibly strong, regular grinding may cause serious damage to your teeth, in addition to causing discomfort.
Even if no one has ever told you that you grind your teeth while you sleep, having an awareness of the symptoms could help you to identify your condition before it causes significant damage to your smile.
