What teeth are affected by grinding?

Teeth grinding can affect any of the teeth in your mouth, but it most commonly affects the molars and the premolars.

These are the teeth that are used for chewing and grinding food. In some cases, grinding can cause damage to the enamel on these teeth, which can lead to tooth sensitivity, pain, and other problems. It’s important to address teeth grinding as soon as possible to help prevent these problems from occurring. Your dentist can help you develop a treatment plan to address your teeth grinding and protect your teeth from further damage.
