Whether it occurs while you’re awake during the daytime or sound asleep at night, teeth grinding can lead to a number of dental problems. It can even affect others in your household – some patients who suffer this problem grind so loudly it awakens their spouse.
Bruxism, which is the dental term for teeth grinding, often leads to painful jaws, worn down tooth enamel and gum irritation. If you are trying to cope with teeth grinding you are not alone. Research shows that as many as eight percent of adults suffer from it, and the percentage is even higher among children. Causes can vary from crooked teeth or abnormal bite to anxiety and sleep apnea.
