The technical term for teeth grinding is bruxism. Bruxism is defined as to the grinding or clenching of the teeth that serves no function, meaning it is not associated with chewing or eating. It is considered ‘parafunctional’ because it is not the intended use of that body part, like nail biting. It is characterised by rhythmic, repetitive, and involuntary activity of masticatory muscles. Teeth grinding and clenching often occur at night, while the sufferer is sleeping; therefore, he or she is not aware of the problem and often doesn't seek a diagnosis for the symptoms they may be experiencing. Common symptoms of teeth grinding include waking up with a headache, the feeling of tenderness or pain in the jaw, unexplained damage to teeth, earaches or soreness when chewing and swallowing. If you’re experiencing any of these tell-tale signs, then you may be suffering from teeth grinding. In addition, your partner may complain of clicking or chattering noises that you make when you sleep.
Grinding and clenching during sleep can generate forces in excess of 200 pounds. It is said that some people who suffer from bruxism, grind their teeth between two and four times an hour. If untreated, teeth grinding can result in permanent tooth and oral damage that requires surgery or other expensive treatments. Teeth grinding wears down on the protective enamel of the teeth, fatigues the jaw joints and can cause serious misalignment. The damage that teeth grinding can do your mouth puts sufferers at risk of tooth decay, oral infections, gum disease, periodontal disease, cracked teeth and tooth loss.
While reducing stress or home remedies may be effective treatments for minor cases of teeth grinding, most people who suffer from habitual teeth grinding require professional solutions to prevent serious, long-term damage. While it can be difficult to find a way to completely stop grinding your teeth, there are ways to prevent the damage that you inflict on your teeth.
A mouthguard offers a protective barrier for your teeth to help halt any further damage. They also provide cushioning for your jaw muscles which receive the brunt of the pressure when you clench or grind your teeth. This will stop you from experiencing jaw pain in the morning or throughout the day, as well as any lasting joint problems in that area. Having a mouthguard can also help to counter the physical movement of grinding and so reduce how often a sufferer grinds or clenches their teeth in the night.
