Bruxism is a dental condition that causes you to clench your jaw or grind your teeth at night as you sleep. Bruxism is common and could cause serious harm to your teeth over time. There are many causes of this condition such as stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, abnormal bites, or even missing teeth. With stress being one of the causes, it is also a good idea to think about the stress in your life and how to overcome.
