What Does Insomnia Do to Your Teeth?
Posted on 4/20/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Insomnia affects all of us from time to time. In fact, 1 in 3 people are suffering from insomnia each night. While occasional insomnia is inconvenient, and robs you of a night of sleep, long-term insomnia can have effects on your body as well as your mouth? What does insomnia have to do with your teeth? Keep reading to find out. Stress, Insomnia and BruxismThe leading cause of insomnia is stress. Stress not only leads to insomnia, but it also leads to bruxism. Bruxism is the clenching and grinding of your teeth during sleep. While teeth clenching and grinding can take place during the time you are awake, it is far more common for you to have bruxism when you are sleeping. If you are suffering from insomnia, and you are clenching your teeth, you are putting yourself at risk for several issues with your oral health. Teeth clenching or grinding is one of the main causes of tooth pain. It is also one of the main causes of morning headaches and migraines. A dentist might also notice that your teeth are showing signs of abnormal wear and tear. Cracks could appear in your teeth, especially towards the back of your mouth, which is where grinding and clenching tend to occur. In fact, tooth clenching could lead to an inability to sleep, which is why insomnia, stress and bruxism can create a vicious cycle. Luckily, there are treatments that can help with insomnia and bruxism. If you have long-term insomnia, your general practitioner may want you to reduce your stress levels. He or she may prescribe medication for you to lower your stress levels. They may also recommend exercise, yoga and meditation for stress reduction. Bruxism can be treated in several different ways, including an oral device that stops you from clenching or grinding your teeth. If you are worried about your sleeping habits, why not give us a call? We may be able to help you control your bruxism, as well as give you information about what insomnia and stress does to your oral health....
