If you have a dull, constant headache or sore jaw when you wake up or if your partner/roommate tells you you’re making loud grinding noises in your sleep, you might be
grinding your teeth without even realizing it. However, this sometimes unnoticeable activity could lead to very noticeable issues.
The medical term for grinding your teeth is Bruxism. Because most people with bruxism only grind their teeth in sleep, many people do not realize they have bruxism. If you suspect you grind your teeth at night, talk to your Dental Care Center dentist.
