It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the grinding or clenching of their teeth, known as bruxing. More often than not, stress is to blame for this condition.

It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main reason people clench and grind their teeth is due to stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but the activity can also cause your facial and neck muscles to become sore.
At the Dublin Metro Dental Group, Dr. Sadineni can fit you with teeth night guards that fit over your upper and lower teeth to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding.
Night guards also can help correct your bite by placing your teeth in proper position.
