What is Bruxism? Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

Teeth grinding or bruxism is a condition in which people unconsciously clench their jaw or grind their teeth. Bruxism can occur during the day or night, and has been linked to several health and lifestyle factors. Keep reading to find out more about this condition.

Key takeaways:

Bruxism can be caused by several factors. They include stress and anxiety, genetics, other underlying health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. TMJ disorder occurs when the joints on the side of your head get misaligned and cause severe pain.

Symptoms of bruxism can range from mild to severe. Some of these symptoms include severe and frequent headaches, pain and tenderness in your neck, face, jaw or ear and difficulty opening the mouth.

There are several treatments available for bruxism and they include wearing a nightguard or a bite splint and practising stress management techniques like meditation and yoga. You can also visit your dentist to get any crooked or cracked teeth fixed as this will reshape the enamel and prevent further grinding.

Dentists can provide effective treatment for TMJ and teeth grinding.
