    Understanding Jaw Clenching and TMJ Bruxism

    Jaw clenching, also known as bruxism, is a common condition characterized by the involuntary and excessive grinding or clenching of teeth. This repetitive behavior often occurs during sleep but can also happen during waking hours. Jaw clenching can contribute to a range of symptoms and complications, affecting your oral health and overall well-being.

    Symptoms of Jaw Clenching

    • Facial Pain: Persistent pain in the jaw, face, or neck can be a result of prolonged jaw clenching.
    • Headaches: Regular headaches, especially in the morning, may be linked to tension from bruxism.
    • Tooth Sensitivity: Grinding can lead to increased tooth sensitivity or damage to dental work.
    • Fatigue: TMJ Bruxism can contribute to disrupted sleep patterns, leading to daytime fatigue.
    • TMJ Disorders: Chronic jaw clenching may contribute to or exacerbate TMJ disorders.
