TMJ Jaw Clenching

    For Patients

    Understanding Jaw Clenching & TMJ

    Jaw clenching, also known as bruxism, is a condition characterized by the unconscious grinding or clenching of teeth, often during sleep. This repetitive behavior can lead to various dental and health issues, particularly when left untreated. Individuals suffering from jaw clenching may experience symptoms such as worn-down teeth, jaw pain or stiffness, headaches, earaches, and even disrupted sleep patterns. While occasional clenching might not cause significant harm, chronic bruxism can result in severe dental damage, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and related complications.

    Symptoms & Impacts

    Recognizing the symptoms of jaw clenching is crucial for early intervention and prevention of further damage. Aside from the physical signs such as worn enamel, individuals may also notice increased jaw pain, tension headaches, or difficulty opening and closing the mouth comfortably. Over time, untreated bruxism can lead to TMJ disorders, which can severely impact one’s quality of life, affecting daily activities like eating and speaking. Moreover, the continuous strain on the jaw muscles can contribute to neck pain, facial discomfort, and even sleep disturbances.
