What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is the habit of grinding your teeth while you sleep. Little is known about why we grind our teeth but we do know that it is quite common and very destructive. Bruxism can cause tooth mobility, periodontal disease, abfractions (a groove on the neck of the tooth next to the gum tissue), fractured teeth, Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction and muscle spasm of the muscles of mastication.
