Did you know?
If you frequently wake up with a headache, neck ache or sore jaw muscles, you may be grinding and clenching your teeth during sleep. Some people even wake up their partner from loud grinding and snoring. Others walk around all day with teeth tightly clenched together due to work stress. Excessive and constant grinding force cause teeth to wear down, cracks start to develop and sometimes even teeth loosening can occur.
