Bruxism

Bruxism is an unconscious habit of clenching or grinding the teeth. In general, bruxism occurs during sleep.

Physical manifestations:

  • Eroded teeth
  • Headaches
  • Buccofacial pain
  • Discomfort in the jaw or the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) upon awakening

Causes

The exact causes have not been clearly proved as yet, but stress and anxiety would play a determining role.

Fortunately, treatments now exist to control bruxism. For more information, ask our staff.
