Do you grind your teeth? You’re not alone! More than 40 million Americans struggle with this condition, also known as bruxism, or clenching together the upper and lower teeth. At Lakeland Smile Experts we want to take care of your teeth and avoid at all cost the risk of a tooth fracture. Grinding your teeth will add unintended pressure on the muscles and tissues of your jaw and that can result in jaw point disorders.
