What is bruxism?

KDAH

Many people experience occasional teeth grinding or clenching during sleep, known as #bruxism. This typically doesn't lead to harm, but when it becomes a regular occurrence, it can result in tooth damage and various complications, including jaw muscle discomfort. Stress, irregular bites, misaligned or absent teeth, or sleep disorders may trigger teeth grinding. Seeking medical advice for bruxism is advisable when it causes pain, leads to dental problems, or disrupts sleep. A doctor can provide guidance, recommend appropriate treatments, and help manage the condition effectively.
