Bruxism is a condition that makes you grind or clench your teeth. If you have bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth together during the day, or clench or grind them at night. People who clench or grind their teeth during sleep are more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea (pauses in breathing).
Mild bruxism may go unnoticed and not require treatment. However, in some cases, bruxism can be severe enough to lead to headaches, damaged teeth, and jaw disorders.
There are ways to manage this condition. You may still grind and clench, but these methods may prevent or correct the wear to your teeth.
If you’re exhibiting any of the above symptoms and think you may be suffering from bruxism, please call our dental office to set up an appointment at Auburn Family Dental.
