Teeth grinding, or bruxism, refers to the involuntary habit of clenching your jaw and sliding your teeth together. Some common causes of tooth grinding include stress, sleep disorders, and compensating for a crooked bite. When your upper and lower jaws don’t align, you might grind your teeth to make them fit more comfortably.
Though teeth grinding can occur during the day, most patients experience this problem at night. As a result, many patients are unaware of their condition until they come in for a check-up. Others only realise it after experiencing symptoms like facial pain and headaches.
Some patients might turn to over-the-counter pain medication and muscle relaxants as a solution. However, these options only offer temporary relief. On the other hand, our teeth grinding treatment works to determine the root cause of your condition and formulate effective therapies.
