Bruxism—also known as tooth grinding—is more than an annoyance. When left untreated, it can lead to chronic jaw and facial pain, headaches, and tooth damage. The problem is that many people with bruxism aren’t aware that they are grinding their teeth until damage occurs, unless a sleep partner complains about the noise.
