What is bruxism?

Bruxism is caused by the incessant gnashing or grinding of the teeth. The jaws are clenched tightly and the teeth slide back and forth over each one’s opposite. Most cases are mild but the more serious ones may result in damage to the teeth, jaw problems and headaches. Bruxism often occurs at night and it is one of the most common sleep disorders. It may also occur during the day, often unintentionally and in inappropriate situations.
