If you begin to notice you are grinding your teeth then your first port of call should always be your dentist, who will be able to see if you have caused any damage. However, even if you have had a lucky escape from causing visible damage the side effects extend far beyond this and could result in headaches, earache, sleep disturbance, mouth and jaw pain and stiff shoulders.
Bruxism is often linked to anxiety and stress as well as smoking and drinking too much coffee, so if you are looking to eliminate the source of the problem then begin by tackling any stress in your life with the use of hypnotherapy or counselling.
The former option is renowned for its ability to bring about deep relaxation which allows the hypnotherapist to access the subconscious mind, and the latter will give you the opportunity to open up about what you feel may be at the route of your anxiety.
