Many people grind or clench their teeth throughout the night. While tension and anxiety can play a part in night grinding, missing or crooked teeth, an irregular bite, or a sleep disorder like sleep apnea often lead to it.
Teeth grinding can harm your teeth and cause pain to your jaw joints. If you’re fighting this issue, Dr. Samadian’s San Francisco team may suggest occlusal guards. They are mouth guards that can defend your teeth and save you from serious future oral health complications.
