Bruxism, the medical term for clenching or teeth grinding, can have a variation of psychological and physical reasons. In most cases, this condition is associated to stress, yet it can also only be the reaction of the body to the teeth being aligned wrong. Bruxism can sometimes occur as a complication of severe brain injury or an indication of rare neuromuscular diseases concerning the face.

Your dentist will do examinations involving your mouth and jaw. Throughout the exam, your dentist will evaluate for tenderness in the muscles of your jaw, including any dental abnormalities like missing teeth, damaged teeth or poor tooth alignment. Aside from this, your dentist will also do series of mouth X-rays.
