Some people complain of uncontrollable grinding or jaw clenching when they sleep at night, during the day, and during periods of stress. This condition is known as bruxism and it can range from being occasional and mild to frequent and aggressive.

Bruxism can lead to a number of problems, including tooth damage, tooth fractures, restoration damage, and tooth loosening. Some are unaware that they are clenching or grinding their teeth but do complain of the symptoms associated with bruxism, such as severe discomfort, headaches, earaches, dizziness, neck pain and jaw joint strain.

A bite guard can alleviate problems associated with grinding or clenching. The bite guard, a removable bite plate, is worn to prevent your teeth from touching each other and aggravating any existing problem.
