If you get up in the morning with neck, head or jaw pain, are clenching or grinding your teeth involuntarily and are going through a stressful time, you may have bruxism and don’t know it.
30% of headaches have their origin in a combination of stress and an imbalance in the adjustment of the teeth or malocclusion.
Bruxism (from the Greek βρύκειν (/brükein/): ‘grinding [your teeth]’) is the involuntary habit of clenching or grinding tooth structures for no functional purpose.
It affects between 10% and 20% of the world’s population and cases rise to 30% due to stress. The problem of grinding or clenching teeth is growing, particularly among pre-teens.
