Do you wake up in the morning and feel discomfort in your jaw and are having a hard time figuring out what could be the problem? If so, you may be suffering from problems related to a condition known as bruxism. Bruxism is the term used to describe a condition where a patient repeatedly clenches and grinds their teeth unconsciously. If not treated in a timely fashion, bruxism can lead to serious oral health complications and the need for additional treatments. One of the biggest problems with this condition is that patients are often unaware of it until they are diagnosed by a dentist because bruxism commonly occurs during sleep.
