Do you feel like you’re grinding your teeth at night? Do you wake up each morning with pain in your jaw joint, facial muscles or with a headache? Do your teeth appear worn? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, you’re probably suffering from clenching or grinding – which can occur at night or during waking hours.
