Do you clench or grind your teeth in stressful situations? You probably have bruxism.
Bruxism is characterized by teeth clenching and grinding that may occur unconsciously in stressful situations or during sleep. This condition is very common, as 10% of all adults have been diagnosed with bruxism.
Symptoms of Bruxism
There are multiple symptoms and signs of bruxism to look out for:
- Tooth Pain
- Tooth Sensitivity
- Jaw Soreness
- Muscle Soreness
- Loose Teeth
- Fractured Teeth
If left untreated, bruxism can seriously damage and wear down your teeth. It is important to treat teeth clenching and grinding early to prevent worn and broken teeth.
