Tooth Grinding/Bruxism

Tooth Grinding/Bruxism Directory

Occasional teeth grinding is usually harmless, but frequent bruxism (tooth grinding) can cause damage to the teeth and jaw pain. Many people are unaware that they grind their teeth, and often a sleep partner is the first to notice. Your dentist can also tell you if you have a teeth-grinding problem. If untreated, bruxism can cause tooth fractures or tooth loss and may also cause your teeth to wear down all the way. This can create a need for expensive dental work to repair the damage. A mouth guard can help protect your teeth at night, but if stress is causing the teeth grinding, you can look into ways to reduce or help manage the stress in your life. Follow the links below to find WebMD’s comprehensive coverage about how teeth grinding affects your mouth, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
