A common nighttime condition is bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. Many people who suffer from bruxism are unaware of the condition because they grind their teeth at night while they sleep. This can result in severe tooth wear and damage, as well as painful symptoms like chronic headaches and migraines, jaw pain, and facial pain. To treat teeth grinding, Dr. Maria Cielo Adjemian may recommend a night guard. The night guard fits over your teeth to prevent bruxism while you sleep.
