Health Tip: Help Control Teeth Grinding

-- Grinding teeth at night often is associated with daytime stress, the National Sleep Foundation says.

The group suggests how to help control the problem:

  • Relax in the hours before bedtime.
  • Create a cool, comfortable, dark and quiet sleep environment.
  • Keep computers, tablets and smartphones out of the bedroom.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Get enough sleep each night. Lack of sleep may worsen teeth grinding.
