TMJ Teeth Grinding

    For Patients

    Do You Constantly Grind Your Teeth?

    Teeth Grinding, or bruxism, is a common condition that involves the clenching or grinding of teeth. When this occurs as a result of TMJ dysfunction, it can have significant effects on your oral health, sleep quality, and overall well-being. TMJ-related Bruxism is often associated with stress, misaligned jaw joints, and muscle tension.

    Effects of TMJ-Related Teeth Grinding:

    • Dental Damage: Persistent grinding can lead to wear and damage to your teeth, including fractures, chipping, and increased tooth sensitivity.
    • TMJ Pain: The excessive strain on the jaw joints during grinding can contribute to TMJ pain, headaches, and facial discomfort.
    • Sleep Disturbances: Bruxism is often more prevalent during sleep, causing disruptions and potential sleep disorders.
    • Muscle Tension: Chronic teeth grinding can result in muscle tension in the jaw, neck, and shoulders.
