TIME TO GRIND!⠀

Bruxism is an unconscious habit of excessive teeth grinding and clenching the jaw. Many people are not aware that they grind their teeth as it usually happens at night. However, bruxism or teeth grinding can occur while you are awake as well. Regular teeth grinding, or bruxism, can wear your teeth down and cause pain and discomfort in the jaw. Headaches and earaches are also common with constant teeth grinding. Some may experience symptoms such as muscle tension, stiff jaw muscles, migraines, tinnitus and other pain in the neck, back or shoulders. Additionally difficulty in opening the mouth, loose, sensitive or worn teeth as well as receding gums can be seen. Studies have proven that there is a link between bruxism and sleep disorders, anxiety and stress. Teeth grinding can also be linked with obstructive sleep apnoea, the most common form of apnoea. This condition usually causes interrupted breathing during sleep. Bruxism can also be related to an unhealthy lifestyle, like poor diet, smoking, alcohol, drugs, caffeine and even excessive use of chewing gum. Bruxism may be a risk factor in developing TMJD (Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction/Disorder) which can cause painful, clicking or locking of the jaw joint. Obviously all of the above signs and symptoms can have other causative factors and so it is important that a full assessment is carried out by a dentist or doctor before bruxism can be diagnosed. In some cases of bruxism, formal treatment may not be necessary. For example, many children grow out of the teeth grinding phase. In some cases, bruxism is related to stress or behavior. So certain therapies, like stress management, may help relieve symptoms. #bruxism#monday#grind ( # @dr.smile via @latermedia )⠀
