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.
