The devastation caused by Teeth Grinding in South East London

12 / 10 / 2012

If you are finding that you are stressed out, not sleeping well and your jaws are starting to ache and you are irritable throughout the day, these could be the perfect signs that you will be grinding your teeth as well. One of the most important element in your life in south east London is your sleep, but if during the day, you are being wound up and taking these stresses to bed with you, you will probably grind your teeth and it’s a condition that can heap terrible damage on you in the long run. You need to learn to handle you stress and then learn how to unwind after a long day (your dentist can help here as they will probably notice how your teeth are becoming worn when you go for a check-up) and then in time, the grinding will stop: during this phase, you’ll have to wear a mouth-guard to prevent further damage to the surfaces of your teeth, otherwise, then worn enamel with be open to abuse from tooth decay. But it’s not only your teeth that will suffer from grinding- your jaws will become terribly damaged for which you will need surgery. Continued grinding will also affect your hearing, promote headaches, do damage to the neck and possibly the central nervous system and also the upper back.
