Did you know that stress can impact your teeth and jaw? If you grind your teeth, that is one of the most common responses to stress. If you experience any of the following symptoms, it could be a sign that you’re grinding your teeth or struggling with a TMJ disorder:

  • Waking up with a sore jaw
  • Having sensitive teeth
  • Getting headaches during the day

The American Dental Association recently released a video that showcases the important connection between stress and oral health:

At our practice, we can treat TMJ issues by creating a custom bite guard. This will shield your teeth from the damage caused by grinding and help stop the pain associated with TMJ disorders.
