Many times a habit turns into a chronic condition resulting in severe damage to teeth etc. such situations call for the immediate initiation of correct relaxation techniques to deal with the root cause of teeth grinding.
  • Some of the causes of teeth grinding can also have more pathological or organic origins. Several health disorders can trigger teeth grinding in children and adults alike. These circumstances necessitate an examination by a specialist to diagnose the condition and identify the root cause of teeth grinding.

  • Sometimes jaw joint disorders or any other upper spinal column dysfunction can also cause teeth grinding to take place.
  • Side effects of medications or drug interactions are also known triggers of teeth grinding.
