Grinding of teeth (Bruxism)

Bruxism is the unconscious rubbing of the teeth and can be the cause of many problems associated with your oral health.

This grinding or clenching of the teeth occurs mostly during sleep and is also associated with episodes of jaw clenching.

The symptoms

  • Tooth wear and abrasion;
  • Headaches;
  • Facial muscle pain;
  • Pain in the jaw and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) upon awakening.

The causes

There is still little information on this subject, but anxiety seems to be a trigger that can amplify bruxism in addition to misaligned teeth or a bad bite.
