It's agreed on by dentists Houston residents see and dentists everywhere that many people grind their teeth while sleeping. Grinding (bruxing) your teeth causes wear of the teeth and can be contributing factors to jaw and muscle pain/soreness, receding gums and tooth sensitivity. You might also be clenching your teeth when sleeping. Clenching can be in combination with or completely separate from bruxing. Custom-made night guards can provide relief from all of these conditions.
