What is that noise?

SPONSORED

Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and hear a bad sound?  Only to realize that it is your partner grinding their teeth while they sleep.    Besides not getting a good nights rest for you but your partner can cause problems such as

 Wearing down the teeth, tooth fractures, toothaches, periodontal problems, muscle fatigue and headaches to name a few.

The cause of nighttime gridding has been linked to stress level and genetic factors, other associations have been found.  These include the use of alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and drug abuse. 

So if your partner lets you know that you are grinding your teeth, first try to limit the amount of alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine before bedtime and if that does not help, then go to your dentist for options to help minimize the damage that nighttime grinding can do.
