Do you grind your teeth at night?
Do you know what bruxism is? You may be suffering from it without even knowing it! If you experience tooth wear, headaches, migraines, jaw pain, or neck pain, chances are you have bruxism.
What is it exactly? Bruxism is grinding, clenching, or friction of the teeth that usually occurs during sleep. Anxiety and stress are often triggers for this condition. More and more people are experiencing this phenomenon.
Jaw joint problems, on the other hand, are related to a muscle, bone, or tissue problem. Symptoms include pain and tenderness around the ears, joints, and muscles of the jaw and face. It can also be difficult to open your mouth and chew, and you can hear crackling or popping sounds.
