Bruxism: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment
Bruxism is a dental condition associated with chronic grinding and clenching of teeth. Occasional grinding due to emotions such as frustration does not cause any significant harm. However, if this has become habitual for you, there are potential risks for dental and oral complications. Bruxism causes accelerated wear of the teeth, and the dental structure will be shortened severely. This attrition is expensive to treat because you will require implants, crowns or bridges to restore aesthetics and functionality.
