Relieve Stress, Reduce Bruxism!
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can be very detrimental to your teeth and your health. If you spend your night-time grinding away as you sleep, you could suffer from jaw pain, headaches and even broken teeth. There are ways that the dentist can help you eliminate these side effects of grinding your teeth, but it is important to get to the source of the problem as well. This source is typically stress, something that most everyone goes through at one point or another in their life. So how can you alleviate the stress before you take it out on your teeth?

1.  Try stretching exercises before going to bed to allow your body to unwind and your muscles to relax to allow you to have a better night of sleep
2.  Start meditation, whether at home or in a group class
3.  this is a wonderful way to alleviate stress
4.  Treat yourself to a massage to let your muscles relax
5.  Find a trusted friend or even a counselor to talk to about your worries and frustrations
6.  Journal nightly to enable yourself to rid your mind of your worries, at least for the night
7.  Avoid doing any important work right before bed, whether it is paying bills or doing your job

When you make it a habit to allow yourself to unwind before bedtime, you will have an easier chance of going to sleep without feeling stressed. This allows your muscles to relax, reducing the risk of grinding your teeth and allows you to get a better night's rest.
