What Are The Various Symptoms
of Bruxism?

Unlike the identification of causal factors of Bruxism, symptoms of Bruxism are easier to characterise. There are well established signs and new ways of diagnosis that have hugely helped the manner in which Bruxism can be pinpointed and its nature understood fairly well.

Bruxism as the medical terminology goes, is the term given to the habit of teeth grinding and (or) teeth clenching that a person carries out in varying degrees depending on the exact nature and type of Bruxism. Since this habit displays a wide variance in the intensity of teeth grinding that an individual case might indulge in, the symptoms of Bruxism vary widely and can show variations in different cases.

Common symptoms of Bruxism:

As most case studies have shown, the most common types of symptoms of Bruxism can be listed as follows:

  • The edges of the teeth especially the front teeth will be worn down with the constant grinding and will take on an eroded look.
  • Minor fractures can develop over time and lead to chipping and breakage of teeth
  • Many times cracks appear on teeth that proceed deep into the teeth and facilitate the rapid progress of tooth decay
  • Wear and tear of teeth can cause teeth sensitivity to occur and a person with Bruxism problem will typically develop intolerance to cold.
  • Teeth grinding can affect gums in many ways and cause receding gum lines and encourage inset of periodontal diseases.
  • The constant grinding and clenching motions of Bruxism often leads to loose teeth which will eventually fall off
  • The teeth grinding and teeth clenching motions also end up exerting extreme pressure on the jaw bone and often leads to deformation of the supporting bone mass of teeth
  • The extreme pressure that the cheek muscle undertakes also leads to severe pain in the region and can cause damage to the insides of cheek as well
  • Bruxism is often accompanied with pain in sides of face as well as neck regions, especially in the chronic cases of Bruxism
  • Bruxism also exhibits symptoms of disturbed sleep or insomnia
  • Extreme cases are known to show symptoms of depression

When the existence of Bruxism is suspected, it is recommended that an examination by a specialist is carried out to establish the symptoms as those of Bruxism and corrective measures taken thereafter to accurately identify the cause and take steps to reverse the condition through effective holistic means.
