Did you know that the condition of your oral health can impact the health of the rest of your body? The mouth is connected to the respiratory and digestive system, which means any bacteria from the mouth can easily travel to these organs and cause infections or other medical problems. This makes it imperative to maintain good oral health, for which you need to see a dentist regularly.

Jaw clenching and or teeth grinding known as BRUXISM is a very common condition that affects men, women and children.
Teeth grinding involves moving the jaw with the teeth held together.

While grinding causes more tooth damage clenching can be harmful due to muscle soreness, damage to jaw joints and in extreme cases cause tooth fracture.
