Bruxism

Bruxism is the clenching or grinding of the teeth, which often occurs while a person is sleeping. When you brux, the force on your teeth is many times greater than during normal chewing. These forces can cause flattened or worn-down teeth, teeth chipped at the gumline, fractured teeth, loose teeth, and damage to the jawbone or jaw joints.
