Talk to your dentist if you think you are clenching or grinding your teeth.
If you wake up with headaches or have jaw pain, you might be clenching or grinding your teeth at night. Your dentist can examine your mouth for signs of grinding, such as irregular wear on the surface of the teeth, and make suggestions to limit any damage to your mouth. They may recommend wearing a custom-fit night guard to reduce the pressure on your teeth and protect them from wear.
