Bruxism is when a person grinds their teeth, often in their sleep. The teeth grind or rub together as the jaw moves with intense pressure either side to side or back and forth. Many teeth-grinders aren’t even aware they’re doing it. Research shows that 80% of teeth grinding happens at night.

Has your sleep partner complained about the grinding noises you make at night?
