How Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) Affects You
If you have the habit of teeth grinding (bruxism), you may experience TMJ symptoms because of excess pressure on the jaw every time you bite down. Grinding and clenching your teeth can wear down the tooth structure and lead to chipped, fractured or damaged teeth.
