601114 tn?1220533411 teeth grinding is something that can be fairly common for children and adults. Often, people grind their teeth when they are stressed out about something or anxious. It can be difficult to address this issue with a 4 year old though. Are you aware of anything that may be causing some anxiety? A new routine like beginning pre-school, a move to a new location, house, etc? If it really becomes a problem, you can take him to the dentist and they can fit him for a mouth guard...
Avatar n tn About a year ago I started clenching my jaw and grinding my teeth in my sleep. I realized I was doing this after waking up a few mornings with horrible headaches and pain in my jaw. My dentist fitted me for a mouth guard (which I wear every night) and then things seemed a little better. Well for the past 2 months I feel like I am doing it more than ever. I wear the mouth guard every night but I am waking up with jaw pain. Is there anything else I can do or take to alleviate this?
Avatar f tn Any head injury may cause teeth grinding. I had a TBI and I am not sure I am grinding my teeth in sleep (bcuz I wake up with dizziness, headache, fatigue everyday/all day) but planning to go to a TMJ specialist at some point.
Avatar n tn Chronic teeth grinding can result in a fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth. The chronic grinding may wear their teeth down to stumps. You can wear a mouth guard that's available in most sports stores but if it continues, you should see your doctor. Good luck!
Avatar n tn the amount of pressure in night time grinding is what wears our joints and cracks our teeth. i cant tell you what to do but you need to discuss this with a dentist and if he suggests only wearing it during the day GET A SECOND OPINION!! if you get the splint issue worked out and you have pain in the muscles in the face and jaw sometimes physical therapy will help. good luck and let me know what happens.
Avatar f tn Pain cycles can be difficult to break and may need multiple disciplines invovled to make progress. Clenching your teeth or grinding your teeth is most likely a sypmtom of any problem and not the problem itself. Knock on more doors--anyone can call themselves a TMJ specialist. Find out how many hours they have in continuing education SPECIFICALLY in the area of craniofacial/orofacial pain/TMD. A thousand hours and a thousand treated patients would yield a true specialist.
Avatar f tn Hello~You may have a TMJ issue. Grinding your teeth will certainly cause it. The temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-mun-DIB-u-lur) joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. You have one joint on each side of your jaw. TMJ disorders — a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD — can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. The exact cause of a person's TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, anyone experiencing the teeth grinding/biting. Also I had a crazy breakout yesterday which was Wednesday, my shots are friday nights and normally my flu like symptoms are just pretty bad saturday afternoon. on Wednesday i'm at work and about 10 am i started shivering to where it was like winter. I put a sweat shirt on but felt like the meds just creeped up on me, 5 days after my shot.
Avatar f tn And the main cause of it is grinding your teeth, hence the mouth guard. Other causes are chewing gum or candy. You need to limit gum to 15 mins at a time and only a few times per week. The rest of what you describe are classic migraine symptoms. And yes the TMJ and Migraine together can make it seem like all the symptoms just meld together into one big blob of blah! As for the takes a good 2 to 3 months for side effects from medication to go away.
Avatar n tn sounds like your problem may be due to grinding. let me tell you from a hardcore grinder, it can make your teeth sens. hurt and shift. talk to your dentist about this and if it is the problem a splint, or nightgaurd can help. bad thing is it is usually covered by medical ins, and hmo's dont cover it . but if you can get one it will save your teeth!
Avatar f tn Consciously or unconsciously tensing your muscles to hold the mouthpiece can cause a throbbing sensation in temple area. It can also be due to refractive error of eye, TMJ, high blood pressure or blocked ear. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn We tried a number of things until finally, my dentist noticed that I was grinding my teeth. I was fitted for a night guard and again my headaches decreased. One problem that has not gone away is my constant problems whenever there is a weather change. If a front moves through and the temperature changes, I tend to wake up with muscle tension, neck pain, and severe headaches. As the day goes on, my headaches often become migraine-like and I may get naseaous.

Avatar n tn I have habit of teeth crunching or teeth grinding during sleep in can it be stopped?
Avatar f tn Teeth grinding can cause severe headaches. Lorazepam very rarely causes paradoxical reactions of agitation, anxiety, etc. This must be discussed with the physician who prescribes it to you. There are other, more specific medications for insomnia that might be more helpful to you and also consider a rip to a dentist who can fit you with a special bite block to prevent teeth grinding. That might help your headaches.
Avatar n tn my 5 year old son grinds his teeth in his sleep really hard, so you can hear the sound, why?
10069532 tn?1407594111 Hey ladies. Here recently, I guess I have been grinding my teeth pretty bad in my sleep. I know that after I have my baby, I will have to get at least one tooth pulled from breaking. What have you ladies done to stop the grinding? I keep waking up because my mouth hurts so bad from the grinding. :( I'm 31 weeks, and don't know how I'm going to deal with 9 more weeks of this pain.
2094952 tn?1334015457 My 4 month old Maltese is grinding his teeth or something. It is almost like he has a plastic pop cap in his mouth and he is biting down on it.
Avatar f tn UGH Have a new symptom, excessive teeth grinding/clenching. I have always grinded my teeth at night, but now I do it all day, it's gotten to the point where it's because very uncomfortable and painful. I literally can not stop, no matter how hard I try. I understand that this could be related to anxiety, but sometimes it literally happens all day on days where I have no anxiety. Anyone experience this???
Avatar n tn I have been grinding my teeth at night when I sleep and it is causing jaw and tooth pain. I recently went to the dentist where we discussed a custom made mouth piece that I would wear at night. The only problem is that it cost about $800.00!!! There is anohter mouth piece that they can make that is a "lesser model" that is about $300.00.

4658567 tn?1364142123 I am wondering why toddlers grind their teeth? I can hear my 3 year old daughter in her room at night. It drives me nuts. Is the one of the worst sounds!! She doesn't do it all the time. And once in a while its very little at night.
3126253 tn?1345384121 My 16 month old daughter sits and grinds her teeth. It drives me nuts. How can I teach her not to do that.
Avatar n tn 2) Is it possible that the grinding of my teeth could cause an opening for infection to get in? (But, the symptoms appeared soon after the cap was put on.) 3) Is it possible the cap trapped bacteria or allowed a space for bacteria to get in? (But, the tenderness started in the adjacent tooth.) 4) What can I do to avoid this in the future?
