Bruxism is the unconscious grinding or clenching of teeth that most often occurs at night and is also associated with episodes of jaw locking.
- Wear and abrasion of teeth
- Headaches or ear problems
- Pain in the mouth area (hard time opening the mouth)
- Pain in the jaw and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) upon waking
- Jaw cracking
Not much is known yet about this condition, but anxiety seems to be a trigger that can aggravate bruxism
