Grinding Teeth Might Indicate an Improper Bite


Bruxism, or the habit of grinding the teeth, is fairly common but it could be caused by an improper bite. Bruxism, whatever the cause, can lead to dental issues such as:

– Tooth sensitivity

– Inflamed gums

– Tooth erosion

Left untreated, bruxism can even lead to tooth loss so it is important to “never wait to seek help” and consult your dentist if teeth grinding is an issue. The dentist can determine if bruxism is due to an improper bite and take steps to correct the problem. Read more about bruxism and improper bites at
