If ever there was a more destructive condition that emanates from your mouth, it is grinding your teeth and the consequences are quite frightening. Stress can creep up on you in a vibrant, hectic and demanding city such as Leeds and without noticing it- it will manifest itself through the way you clench your teeth, either through anger or stress. You will also take this action to bed with you if you can’t chill-out beforehand, you will be damaging your jaw-joints no end through grinding and it doesn’t stop there: constant grinding can spread through your head causing migraines and tinnitus, and then work its way through your neck, threatening your nervous system before affecting your upper back. If you pay regular visits to your dentist, the wear and tear will be picked up on quickly and your dentist can supply you with a guard to protect your teeth from damage. But that isn’t the cure to the problem- you need some form of therapy. Anger and stress management is essential here in order to identify the problems that you have during the day, and then hopefully, teach you how to take time to relax and forget work related problems when you get home. Remember, solving the problems of tooth grinding at the start can very well save your life in the future.
