Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a problem that is aggravated by stress. People that clench their teeth during the day or at night mostly do so without knowing they are doing it. Often they only realise when they wake up with jaw soreness. Or if their dentist notices that they are wearing down their teeth.
Bruxism can result in headaches, earaches, facial pain, chipped teeth, chewed tissue on the inside of the mouth and a square jawline. Many people are not even aware that it is a recognised medical condition.
