  • You need to first find out the cause for bruxism. Bruxism can occur due to stress or occlusal discrepancies. If it is because of occlusal discrepancies, then your dentist can relieve it and if it is because of stress, u need to reduce your stress level and wear professionally made night guard. If u won’t do so u would be putting your tooth to risk. Consult your dentist if it causes pain in your teeth. Night guard is supposed to relax your muscle not cause pain.For more info on bruxism you can visit the following link ..... http://www.identalhub.com/article_diagnosing-and-curing-bruxism-13.aspx
