I’ve been subconsciously clenching my jaw at night due to anxiety for months now. I wear a mouthguard (although sometimes it falls out) but I’m starting to get serious pain in my teeth. I’m worried that I’ve cracked some of my teeth. It’s gotten to the point where I try to avoid chewing on one side because it hurts so bad. What’s even worse is most of my teeth have fillings so I feel like it makes things even more complicated if I have to have restorative work. I’m going to try to get to the dentist as soon as possible but I’m so worried that this will result in me having to get an extraction(s). My teeth are causing me constant anxiety and depression.
