SAN DIEGO, Calif., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tax season is stressful for many Americans, and even the IRS's extension of this year's filing deadline to April 18 may not provide much relief. To help prevent tooth damage caused by night time teeth grinding and clenching associated with tax season stress, Plackers, a leading brand of consumer oral care products, is providing complimentary Grind-No-More dental night protector samples including free shipping and handling to the first 10,000 people who sign-up on its website at

Bruxism, the medical term for teeth grinding or clenching, is a common sleep disorder that is estimated to affect more than 60 million adults across the United States. Because most teeth grinding and clenching occurs during the sleep cycle, many people are unaware they grind or clench. By the time symptoms such as recessed gums, increased tooth sensitivity, jaw pain and worn tooth enamel have surfaced, irreversible oral damage may have already occurred.

Although the exact cause of bruxism is debatable, there are several physical and psychological contributors that may intensify during tax season, including:

  • Stress or anxiety
  • Increased frustration levels or suppressed anger
  • Overall inability to relax
  • Changes in sleep cycle or poor sleeping habits

Bruxism is a common, and often undiagnosed, oral health problem in America. As people tackle their taxes, the added stress may contribute to increased teeth grinding and clenching while sleeping. To help protect teeth, preventive measures such as using a dental night protector like Plackers Grind-No-More can be taken before irreversible damage occurs.

To provide taxpayers with relief and increase awareness of bruxism, Plackers is offering complimentary samples of its Grind-No-More Dental Night Protector, including free shipping and handling, to the first 10,000 people who visit For those who miss out on this special offer, a free Grind-No-More sample can be still be requested through Plackers' website for a nominal shipping and handling fee.
