Bruxism, Migraines and Headache Solutions

Bruxism is Teeth Grinding! The main factors that cause teeth grinding are… Number one… Environmental stressors. That includes all the stress that life brings you.. whether it’s getting married or a divorce, preparing for finals in school, when your best friend is getting married, when someone close loses a job, or when the economy goes into recession etc. The second most common factor that causes teeth grinding is an interference in the masticatory system… WHAT? Sorry for that dental jargon. That just means that your bite isn’t exactly perfect. Teeth that mesh (or don’t mesh) together is what I’m talking about. See, the lower jaw bone is called the Mandible. The Mandible has an upper part (the Condyle) that is part of the TMJ (Temporo Manibular Joint). When the Condyle is in the right place and at the same time when the teeth fit perfectly together without interferences when chewing, you basically have a perfect bite. The more your bite is off… the higher the tendency you have to experience teeth grinding. For more information, visit: tmjreviews.com
