What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is a dental condition where you chronically grind or clench your teeth. This is something that you do subconsciously and can be very destructive to your teeth. 

Bruxism and Occlusal Disease

Occlusal Disease is when you have abnormal wear on the teeth. It normal to have wear on your teeth as you age, but a patient with occlusal disease has dramatically worn teeth. This disease is often attributed to bruxism and can cause many issues down the road.  

Bruxism and TMD/TMJ 

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your lower jawbone to your skull. Oftentimes, bruxism can cause Temporomandibular disorders (TMD), which can lead to severe jaw pain and chronic headaches.
