The Tooth About Teeth GrindingFebruary 13, 2019 12:00 pm |
Headaches in Cedar Park are a dime a dozen. We all know the frustration of having your day interrupted by throbbing, shooting pains in the head. If you suffer from frequent headaches that never seem to go away, Dr. Kerr, Dr. Patel, Dr. Hedgecock, and Dr. Patel would like you to know about bruxism, or teeth grinding. At Vista Ridge Family Dentistry, we love spreading the news about all things dental health, so here is some headache information that just might change your life.
Bruxism & HeadachesYou may not be aware of it, but everyone clenches and grinds their teeth at some point and to some degree. It’s a natural reaction to stress. During the day, you might catch yourself doing it and make a conscious effort to stop, but during the night, you are unaware of it and will naturally grind much harder. Unfortunately, some people in Cedar Park have such problems with bruxism that they may experience:
- Frequent, painful headaches
- Damaged, worn-down teeth and surrounding tissues
