What are the symptoms of bruxism and their consequences?

Bruxism is a central topic in medical research related to oral health. Described clinically as grinding or clenching of the teeth, this phenomenon, although common, often remains unknown to the general public, generating complications that deserve in-depth attention.

Mainly nocturnal, bruxism manifests itself by repeated rubbing of the teeth, most of the time without the patient's knowledge. Beyond just the audible grinding, other symptoms, such as pain in the jaw or facial muscles, may suggest the presence of this disorder. This pain, varying from a dull sensation to acute discomfort, can mask or be confused with other oral pathologies.

Over time, the most tangible manifestation of this disorder is tooth wear. The surfaces of the teeth gradually flatten, increasing sensitivity to stimuli such as cold, hot, or sweet foods. In more advanced cases, bruxism can even lead to cracks or breaks, compromising the structural integrity of the teeth.

The effects of bruxism are not confined to the mouth

The effects of bruxism are not confined to the mouth. Complications may arise, such as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, manifested by pain and cracking. Added to this are frequent headaches, especially tension headaches. In addition, sleep disruption due to grinding can cause persistent fatigue, impacting daily life.
