Bruxism

Teeth grinding and clenching

Bruxism is an unconscious movement of friction between teeth. Teeth grinding or clenching occurs mostly during sleep and is also associated with episodes of tension in the jaw.

Symptoms:

  • Tooth wear and abrasion
  • Headaches
  • Orofacial pain
  • Pain in the jaw and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) upon waking up.

Causes

There is still little information on this subject but anxiety seems to be a trigger that can accentuate bruxism.
