About TMD, Grinding and Jaw Pain
Bruxism is when you clench (biting your top and bottom teeth together) or grind (sliding your teeth back and forth over each other) your teeth. In some cases, this can cause significant pain and dysfunction of the jaw joint. Bruxism & grinding can result in excessive wear of the teeth causing sensitivity, pain and loss of otherwise healthy tooth structure.
Some likely causes of bruxism are (but not limited to):
- Physical stress such as illness, nutritional deficiencies, or dehydration
- Psychological stress, anxiety, and tension
- Undiagnosed/untreated dental disease
- Misaligned teeth
- Recreational drug habits
