Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is most common during sleep which can seriously damage your teeth.

Consult your dentist if you think you have bruxism.

Here are some things that you can do to help combat grinding your teeth:

If bruxism has damaged your teeth you should see a cosmetic dentist to discuss whether crowns or veneers may be a suitable treatment for you.
