Bruxism and TMJ disorder


Bruxism is an unconscious frictional movement of the teeth. This grinding or clenching of the teeth occurs mostly during sleep and is also associated with episodes of jaw clenching.

The symptoms

• Tooth wear and abrasion
• Headaches
• Oral and facial pain
• Pain in the jaw and temporomandibular temporomandibular joint (TMJ) on waking

The causes

There is still little information on this, but anxiety seems to be a trigger that can amplify bruxism. Do you think you have bruxism? Consult us.
