Break Free From Bruxism With Your Dentist’s Help

Do you regularly wake up in the morning with a headache? Maybe your jaw pops, or your teeth have become sensitive for no apparent reason. Well, there’s a good chance you have bruxism. This condition causes you to grind or clench your teeth in your sleep when you’re not aware you’re doing it. It’s not something you have put up with. Your dentist in Katy at FM Dentistry & Orthodontics can help.

What are the reasons we develop bruxism?

A couple of common links are excess stress and certain personality types. We often see bruxism in people with nervous tension, including frustration, anger, or pain. It also affects people who have overly competitive tendencies, are hurried, or aggressive. Another interesting piece of evidence points to an imbalance in brain neurotransmitters as a contributing factor. Certain medicines can also contribute to the development of bruxism.
