All About Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)

Teeth grinding involves a clenched jaw, and usually occurs while asleep. It can be caused by stress, misaligned teeth, certain medications or eating disorders:

– If left untreated, teeth grinding can wear down the protective tooth enamel, resulting in sensitivity.

– Symptoms include headaches, facial pain, earache and temporomandibular joint problems; people often don’t know they are grinding unless someone else tells them they’ve heard it.

– The condition usually resolves in children, however your dentist can provide a protective mouthguard for long-term grinders.

“Treatment for bruxism can depend on your symptoms or the underlying cause.”
