1. What is Teeth Grinding?

Bruxism is the involuntary grinding, gnashing, and clenching of teeth, usually while a person is asleep. About 50% of people grind their teeth on occasion, but only about five percent do so on a regular basis and with a considerable amount of force. Generally, a partner or parent is the first to notice the condition, as they hear the grinding while the affected individual is sleeping.
