Tooth Grinding and Clenching (Bruxing) causes problems such as migraine, toothache, aching muscles, jaw and neck pain and morning headaches. It is thought that over 10 million adults in the UK are affected.
Bruxism involves some of the most powerful facial muscles. Most people grind/clench their teeth occasionally. Sleep bruxism can be extremely damaging as patients can exert 20% more pressure than whilst awake.
