What are the Long-Term Dangers of Grinding Your Teeth?


Those who regularly grind their teeth suffer from a condition known as bruxism. This grinding can lead to broken or chipped teeth, as well as headaches and jaw sensitivity. One common symptom involves inflamed gums as a result of considerable pressure.

Many people are unaware of the damage that can occur over time. A number of problems can result and if left unchecked, these may require more intensive forms of intervention.

A dentist or orthodontist will be required to repair damaged teeth. Without treatment, those who grind their teeth are more likely to experience pain or discomfort within their jaw joints.

Reasons why it is prudent to seek the advice of a professional about bruxism:

  • Gums can become red and inflamed.
  • Higher risk of tooth damage.
  • Jaw joint discomfort and headaches.
  • “The truth is that teeth grinding can have a bigger impact on your oral health than you might think.”
