(HealthDay News) -- Tooth grinding can lead to headache, jaw pain and may even crack your teeth.
Stress is a common trigger, especially during sleep.

- Talk to your dentist about the possibility of taking a muscle relaxant at bedtime.
- Get psychological therapy if your stress or anxiety is serious.
