Avatar n tn It can also be due to other reasons such as abfraction, in which you are grinding/clenching your teeth and its causing wear and tear at the neck of the tooth and thinning the area out. Try some sensitivity toothpaste as well.
Avatar m tn Due to grinding in my sleep Ive had two front lower teeth, #24 and #25 need root canals in the past 5 months. All my teeth are healthy looking, no visible wear, but I guess the stress of my sleep grinding/clench has taken its toll on the roots and painful abscesses formed. The dentist who performed my second root canal today was surprised that another dentist in his practice didn't put a crown on the tooth from the first root cana #24l.
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?
Avatar f tn Most often the cause of TMJ is muscle tenion, often manifested by clenching or grinding your teeth or an anatomic problem with the joints. TMJ, if left UNDIAGNOSED, can progress into a difficult condition to treat. I would suggest the next time you're at the dentist, tell him about this experience and he/she will probably take an X-ray of the TM joint to check for any abnormalities.
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. I put a sweat shirt on but felt like the meds just creeped up on me, 5 days after my shot.
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???
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?

427382 tn?1298209586 Is there any other babies out there grinding their teeth? Mady finally has her top teeth sprouting out and now she grinds them. I am debating calling the dc. but wanted to see if anyone else has the same problem.
284738 tn?1283106819 aubree has been grinding her teeth the last two days and its super annoying.. plus i don't know what it is doing to her teeth.. why is she doing this? and what can i do to make her stop?
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 f tn In responding to a previous question, my 89 year old mother withalzheimer's started grinding her teeth about a year ago. I've found that giving her a piece of gum to chew alleviates the grinding. She grinds her teeth many different times--I don't feel that it is always stress related.. I have even heard her tell herself to stop!
Avatar n tn You probably do grind. There are very obvious signs of a grinder. There are so many reasons teeth can go bad, especially when we start getting older. Do you take any medication? Some medication can cause dry mouth. When dry mouth occurs your mouth doesn't have the saliva it needs to wash away bacteria from your teeth. Tons of water on a daily basis is essential.
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!
1445161 tn?1312085507 So, I don't know if this is the right place but here goes.. I'm 22 yr old female. Iv'e been grinding my teeth very hard since I was a kid only in my sleep. It gives me so much pain when I wake and also I notice that it weakens my teeth. I read that the only treatment is Botox. I also think that all these years of grinding has made my jaw muscles larger and it just looks big and unappealing to me. Am I right? Can you please tell me more about this?
Avatar n tn It seems like a great way to improve my teeth. My concern is that I wear a nite guard for grinding. Lumineers are supposedly not just cosmetic, but will add strength and stability to my teeth. They are supposed to last 15-20 years. The grinding has caused many "craze lines" in my bottom 4 front teeth and a slight chipped top tooth. What are your thoughts in my case. thank you.
