You could be clenching your teeth because of this
Have you ever found yourself clenching your teeth at night? It’s not just a habit—it could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Tooth clenching and grinding, also known as bruxism, is when you grind your teeth together during sleep. It can cause severe damage to your teeth and jaw, so it’s essential to understand what causes it and what you can do about it.
Common causes of tooth clenching include anything that can disturb your sleep, such as stress and anxiety, stomach problems like acid reflux, and chronic neck or back pain. However, you may have no idea that you’re unconsciously grinding your teeth while asleep.
