Tricks to Help You Stop Clenching Your Teeth When You Focus
Posted on 5/20/2018 by Clay Keith dds
One of the most common times to struggle with clenched teeth is when you are trying to focus on a task.

The next thing you know, your jaw hurts, and you feel yourself releasing the clench. This is not good for your teeth. It can leave you facing pain and dental repairs if you leave it as is. Instead, give these tricks a try to help you avoid clenching your teeth unknowingly.
