Teeth grinding nerve

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth grinding nerve


Avatar n tn He said the aching from sweet foods might mean that the sweetness is getting between my teeth, into contact with the inflamed nerve (from all the grinding). I purchased a biofeedback device called GrindAlert to curb the grinding, but it will probably be a while before I begin to see results. I'm wondering why I'm still having this discomfort. I have had cavities filled in the past with no problems, but I always had the metal ones.
Avatar f tn Do you, by any chance, grind or grit your teeth when you're asleep?... most people who do aren't necessarily aware of it... until they experience soreness and/or intense, searing pain in their teeth, particularly in the lower molar area. I know because I have intermittent pain/ sensitivity in my lower molars and it's directly linked to pressure caused by unconscious tooth grinding... and, tooth grinding is, more often than not, a result of tension and stress.
Avatar n tn For a couple of years my dental hygenist and dentist have been telling me I have small cracks in my teeth, which they suspected were due to teeth grinding or clenching. I did not have any other symptoms of grinding teeth in my sleep (no headaches, jaw pain, partner not aware of it, etc.), so I didn't take it too seriously. Now I started having a pain in 1 tooth just when I bite down on it.
Avatar n tn Just mild numbess on cheek and major double vision. Double vision gets worse at night. I do grind my teeth and have headaches some times from teeth grinding.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms might be TN but they could could also be issues with the teeth grinding or issues involving your TMJ (temporomandibular joint). The TMJ is known for causing your type of pain as is TN. A visit to a good dentist is in order to help weed out some of the possibilities and whelp you get a diagnosis.

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 f tn My bf told me after I mentioned it that I have been grinding my teeth at night. Never have b4 anyone going through this? Or have you guys heard of grinding your teeth while pregnant?
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.
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 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 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.
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.

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???
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...
187316 tn?1386356682 Aspen keeps grinding her teeth and it is driving me insane. I keep giving her things to put into her mouth so that she wont grind them because I think that it could be causing damage and dont want it to become a permanent habit. Does anyone know of anything to get babies to stop grinding teeth?

1127040 tn?1289718662 TMJ disorder can arise due to excessive teeth grinding habits, dental problems, misalignment of the teeth and trauma to the jaws. Therefore, you may experience headache, facial pain, ear pain, dizziness and nausea. I would recommend you to see a neurologist or dentist who can evaluate the details of your case and could better determine the insight of your situation.
Avatar f tn If there's nothing wrong with your teeth - like an infected tooth, etc. - then it could be something with the trigeminal nerve. You may have something wrong with your teeth that you aren't aware of, or it could be something neurological. It could also be that you are grinding your teeth at night, stressed and clenching your jaw - things like that - https://www.humana.
Avatar n tn He called in an oral surgeon who felt of it and said it was a bony ledge. She said I had muscle trauma from grinding my teeth so bad at night. My question is, can this cause my ear to hurt constantly. My family doctor says my ear looks fine inside and there's no reason for me to have an earache. My ear has hurt off and on since the extraction.
