Using Night Guards for Tooth Grinding

Bruxim (tooth grinding) is the clenching together of both the upper and lower teeth. Clenching your teeth together can put pressure on the muscles, tissue, and other surrounding structures of the jaw and can cause jaw joint disorders, headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, ear pain, tense muscles, and excessive wear on the teeth. These symptoms together generally refer to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
