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