Are You Grinding Your Teeth at Night?
Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a common dental issue which can cause significant damage to the teeth and gums. It usually occurs unconsciously during sleep and is often caused by stress or anxiety. In some cases, however, teeth grinding can be related to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. TMJ is a condition that affects the jaw joint and can cause pain, discomfort and difficulty with chewing or talking. The root cause of TMJ is not fully understood, but it can be triggered by an injury to the head or neck area; muscle imbalances surrounding the temporomandibular joint; stress; misaligned teeth; arthritis; gum disease; or genetics. For those who have TMJ disorder, teeth grinding is not just an occasional annoyance—it’s a painful condition that needs to be taken seriously and treated quickly in order to avoid damaging the teeth and gums even further, including the use of a TMJ mouth guard..
