Do You Grind Your Teeth?

As you continue to grind, you may dislocate or even damage the jaw joint and give yourself headaches, neck or shoulder pain and ringing in the ears. And you almost certainly will loosen your teeth and wear away their chewing surfaces. If you grind down your teeth, you can throw your whole jaw out  and your teeth won’t align properly.
