Bruxism is the unconscious grinding of teeth which can cause a variety of other health conditions. Teeth grinding is a result of stress and anxiety. People are unaware of this physical response to stress and often ignore this condition. Teeth grinding causes irreparable damage to the teeth as well as the nerves in the root of the teeth.
