Dental Grinding

Bruxism just means teeth grinding, gnashing, or clenching. If you catch yourself clenching your jaw during the day, then it’s likely that at night, while you sleep, you’re grinding or clenching your teeth. And while it sounds like a relatively harmless sleep habit, that’s not always the case.

Causes and Effects of Bruxism

Doctors don’t entirely understand the causes of bruxism, but it’s likely due to various factors, including genetic, physical, and psychological factors.

Medical personnel also differentiate bruxism into two types: waking bruxism and sleeping bruxism. It’s widely believed that waking bruxism is the product of emotional turmoil, such as feelings of anger, anxiety, and frustration or is a response to stress or intense focus and concentration. Think, for example, about the most recent time you’ve experienced any of those feelings; can you remember clenching your jaw in response?
