Protect Your Smile By Addressing Nightly Teeth Grinding

By brushing your teeth each morning, you fight the accumulated bacteria that can form in the course of their rest. For some people, that buildup of harmful microbes is not the only concern for their smile at night.

One is that you can wear down your enamel through repeated friction and end up with chips or cracks in teeth that hurt your smile – in some cases, damages can even threaten the health of your tooth. You can also cause problems for yourself by putting stress on your jaw joints and muscles, which can lead to persistent pain because of TMJ disorder.
