Teeth clenching is triggered by an uneven bite and NOT by stress. Stress will make you more easily bothered by an uneven bite, but it is not the trigger.
Examples of Damage from an Uneven Bite
What Our Patients Say
For the last couple of years I’ve been struggling with grinding my teeth on one side and consistent jaw pain. After consulting with Dr. Simon I decided that the TMJ treatment was what I needed to do to be more proactive and invest in a better bite today versus having to fix it in 10 years or so. Happy I did it. I definitely recommend talking to Dr. Simon about TMJ treatment.
When I became a patient I explained to Dr. Simon that I was having some problems with headaches, my jaw popping and some clenching and grinding of my teeth. Dr. Simon discovered this is all is linked TMJ. Since I started the treatments I’ve noticed a great difference in the pressure on my jaw from the clenching – So far everything is going great. Dr. Simon is extremely knowledgeable.
