Your oral health care consists of more than just brushing and flossing daily. You also need to make sure that you’re keeping tabs on any oral health conditions that may arise from time to time. This includes signs of tooth wear and grinding due to a condition known as bruxism.
If you are suffering from bruxism, it may be difficult to detect, as it often takes place while you sleep. If you are suffering from sleep bruxism, look for the signs each morning when you wake up. This includes any signs of flat or worn teeth.
If you are suffering from bruxism, you may be experiencing jaw or face pain, sore muscles within your face, sore areas in your jaw or headaches and earaches the seem to originate from different sections of your face and jaw. Other common signs of bruxism include damage to the linings of your cheek tissue as well as indentations on your tongue.
