How can you tell if I grind my teeth?: Dr Pratish Dholakia, Dentist
We'd be able to see tiny cracks within the enamel of your tooth there. Sometimes you've actually worn the enamel away completely, and you can see the dentine - the second layer of the tooth has become exposed there, because it's a softer layer your teeth will then wear away at a faster rate.
Some patients do get jaw joint symptoms, because they're grinding their teeth at night time, their muscles in their jaw joint are being overworked. We'll take photos and show you on the TV screen how much damage is being done, and what we need to do to try and prevent any further damage.
