Bruxism is the condition of those who bite down or grind their jaws due to the stress or discomfort. Some bite and grind while they are awake, whilst others do so when sleeping. These habits generally put a strain on the TMJ causing tension, and stress leading to other conditions in the region as well. Continuous teeth grinding without proper intervention lead to severe headaches, migraines, ear, and neck pains.
