Grinding, gnashing, or clenching of teeth

Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth unconsciously when you’re awake or while you’re sleeping.

Bruxism can place extreme pressure on your teeth. Prolonged teeth grinding or jaw clenching can lead to cracked or broken teeth, broken crowns and fillings, increased risk of gum problems, and greater stress on your jaw joints and muscles. It’s important to look for early signs and symptoms of bruxism to avoid impacting your oral and overall health.
