TMJ, Teeth Grinding, Snoring

Grinding of the teeth can have causes that aren't due to underlying disease. These include an abnormal alignment of the jaw, intense concentration or situational anxiety (not anxiety disorder).  TMJ can result in pain and compromised movement of the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles.

What is TMJ?

The temporomandibular joint or TMJ acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. Dysfunction can lead to pain and discomfort.

Jaw pain, difficulty chewing and clicking and locking of the jaw joint are some of the symptoms.

Common treatments include medication, bite guards and physiotherapy.

Causes and Symptoms of Teeth Grinding?

This condition can affect adults and children and can occur during day or night.

Some people don't have any symptoms. Others may experience headaches, jaw pain, tooth pain or dental problems.

Children with this condition will often improve on their own. For adults, dental guards may help protect the teeth from damage.
