Learn More about Teeth Grinding

Bruxism 1140x450

Bruxism 300x237Teeth grinding can be caused by tense jaw muscles or by a misaligned bite. Avoid chewing on objects such as pens and pencils, as well as chewing gum, since it leads to jaw clenching.

Key takeaways:

  • Teeth grinding can be caused by anxiety, stress, sleep apnoea, other sleep disorders, and abnormal bite.
  • A sore jaw and a dull headache upon waking up may signal the problem of teeth grinding.
  •   You dentist will fit you with a mouthguard to prevent any further damage to the teeth. The underlying cause should be addressed to finally stop the grinding.

The problem of teeth grinding is not limited to adults. Approximately 15% to 33% of children grind their teeth. Children who grind their teeth tend to do so at two peak times — when their baby teeth emerge and when their permanent teeth come in.
