Bruxism is a medical term that describes the act of grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw.
Sometimes, people grind their teeth without it causing any symptoms or problems. However, regular and persistent teeth grinding can cause pain and discomfort in your jaw and it can wear down your teeth.
Teeth grinding can also cause headaches and earache.
Most cases of teeth grinding (nearly 80%) occur subconsciously during sleep. It is usually associated with contributing factors, such as stress or anxiety.
