Teeth grinding at night

Ok so my mom have been telling me at night when I sleep I would grind my teeth really hard and loud. It is so scary that she though my teeth would come off @@(I sleep with my room door open)

Anyways sometimes even when I get up in the morning I would feel my jaw is sore or my teeth is in pain.....

I do know I don't drink a lot of water9maybe 2o to 4 cups a day inculding coffee, pop soup....) Just wondering is it coz the lack of water I am having is causing this or is more of an issue with the body where I have to go to the doctor?

can you see grinding marks (like worn out edges) on your front teeth?

what's happening is called bruxism. it's usually caused by stress.

see a dentist and look into buying a night-guard and wear it when you go to sleep.

Thx! Is strange though coz I don't have much stress.... at least I don't think I do. I got a decent job and make decent money.

Can sleeping pattern cause this as well? I sometime sleep with the computer on or I would use the computer till I actually sleep at night. Sometimes I would only get around 4 to 5 hourse of sleep a night.

The dentist told me is probably stress. But to me I think it was a bad habit.

It doesn't have to be related to stress. I barely have any stress and my dentist/orthodontist said that I am slowly showing signs of worn out teeth. My brother has this too when he sleeps (its pretty loud and scary). The orthodontist said that I could ask my dentist to make a mold of my teeth and make some kind of plastic/rubber guard for my teeth so it won't grind.

best thing for you is to go to your dentist and have them make you a night guard. You wear it at night to prevent your teeth from grinding.

grinding -> loss of teeth enamel -> prone to tooth decay

Usually, teeth grinding is related to stress or anxiety. If this isn't the case, it may be due to anything that disrupts your sleep. It is suggested that you should avoid foods and drinks that include caffeine, such as colas, chocolate, and coffee to decrease the chances of teeth grinding. Consult with your dentist to prevent complications by creating a mouth guard to wear at night.

As someone who has fucked his teeth up from grinding over the years get a night guard and use it! I had a guard made up when I was in highschool but I never used the damm thing. Over the years I've had others made and used them once in a while. The last couple years I've been wearing it almost every night but now it's to little to late.

If your a grinder and either ignore the dentists warning to wear one because it's uncomfortable at first or feel you don't need it you'll be sorry. Long term effects for me have been excessive wear to the point where at 30 my dentist told me I had the wear of a 55 year old. I've had multiple root canals and crowns because of it. It's cost me lots of money and will cost me lots more over the next bunch of years.

I hate to sound like I'm lecturing but as someone who totally regrets not taking better care of his teeth early on I hope people can get informed. Take the time and measures to protect yourself and save money and avoid pain in the long term.

It's not always because of stress. You can buy mouthguards that protect your teeth. It is important to do this if you grind your teeth, otherwise they will wear down and even crack.

My wife's dentist said that she has a few cracks in her teeth, and said that Chinese people are particularly prone to this because they tend to have weaker teeth. Even light bruxism can crack weaker teeth (I never noticed that she grinds her teeth)

If you are grinding your teeth.
Get a night gaurd and use it.
You will forever regret it if you dont take this serious.

Quasi... Same problem with me.
Grinded the fk out of my teeth.. and now its pretty bad..
You arent lecturing, its the absolute truth.

Although stress "can" be related.
It may not be the case.

Get it looked at, checked out, and wear the mouth gaurd.

Yes, mold is the best option if you have a good dental plan.

I had a grinding problem a few years ago, my dentist made a mold but I never wore it. A couple years passed and one day I'm biting into an apple and my front tooth chipped. The reason was because I was grinding my front teeth so much that it caused tiny cracks in the front two teeth. My grinding has stopped now but don't delay in getting it checked out.

Not sure if this is works or not but when sleeping, try to position yourself so that your molars dont touch in relaxed form. For me, I notice when my molars touch, i will automatically crunch my teeth without thinking.

also, with the constant grinding your teeth is gonna be sensitive you're gonna have a hard time eating cold/hot foods. when i drink or eat cold things now, i have to take little sips/bites or only eat it on the right side of my mouth cause the left side is so effed.

toothpastes like sensodyne help relieve symptoms, but it doesn't cure the pain forever.

grinding other than stress, can also be due to the alignment of your teeth. just wanted to point that out.

I used to grind my teeth pretty badly at night. One night I actually broke off a sizable chunk from my right canine tooth. After that I got a mouth guard from shoppers and not too long ago I got a guard made by my dentist. Its really worth it getting one made by the dentist. It fits better, your teeth don't hurt anymore in the morning, theres no jaw pains and theres no grinding.
