Bruxism is the excessive grinding or clenching of your teeth and jaw. People can clench and grind their teeth during the day or while they are sleeping, meaning that bruxism can be diagnosed as either awake bruxism or sleep bruxism. Teeth grinding may not require treatment if the condition is mild enough. However, more severe grinding can lead to other serious issues like damage to your teeth, jaw conditions, and headaches.
