Sore Jaw? Here's Why...
January 10, 2014 grinding-teeth-can-ruin-your-smile

If you wake up with a sore jaw, have chronic headaches or notice that you have a fractured tooth, you might be grinding your teeth without even realizing it. Most people are not aware of the fact that they grind their teeth until they see their dentist who can pinpoint the symptoms. If you have been told that you are grinding your teeth, you might find yourself wondering why. Of course every case is different, but there are a few reasons that commonly occur.

•  Stress &ndash
•  If you are under a lot of stress it can come out at night. When your muscles clench, it is a natural reaction to grind your teeth.
•  Mouth Irritations &ndash
•  Whether it is teeth that do not line up perfectly or you have another dental issue occurring in your mouth, you could end up grinding your teeth together at night to deal with the irritation.
•  Allergies or Colds &ndash
•  If you are uncomfortable from allergies or a cold, you might grind your teeth at night to deal with the discomfort.

There are several ways to deal with your grinding, including visiting your dentist to get fitted for a mouthguard. If you prefer to do something less drastic, you can try including relaxation methods into your daily routine and find ways to manage your allergies to avoid chronic grinding. Unfortunately, if you are subjected to grinding your teeth, you might not be able to prevent it from occurring 100 percent, but decreasing the amount of time that it occurs can help your overall dental health.
