Wear and Tear
General wear and tear is a common result of teeth grinding. This type of wear and tear is often not detrimental, however, these behaviors could reflect more serious concerns that should be addressed early. Experts at Healthline mention how misalignment of teeth could be a factor in teeth grinding behavior.
