If you frequently grind or clench your teeth, you likely have a condition known as bruxism. While mild bruxism may not require treatment, severe bruxism can negatively impact the health of your teeth and jaw.

Bruxism is often related to temporomandibular joint disorder (known as TMJ or TMD). Temporomandibular joint disorder is a painful condition that occurs when the jaw joint is misaligned.
