The symptoms of nighttime teeth grinding are difficult to miss, but all too often ignored — like headaches, tooth sensitivity, and weak or worn down teeth. Unfortunately, many people don’t seek treatment for the condition we also call bruxism simply because they don’t realize there is an effective solution in sight.
