Bruxism? What is that? It’s simply the clinical term for clenching and grinding your teeth. Most often patients are not even aware that they are doing it. Some of the most common signs that you are what we call a “Bruxr” are complaints of pain in the jaw, most often in the morning when you first wake up, and obvious ware on the biting surfaces of your teeth. Stress can be a big factor in clenching and grinding your teeth in your sleep. Fortunately we can identify the signs of bruxism and there are ways to help prevent further damage to your teeth and your jaw.
