Realizing you have bruxism
As mentioned before, bruxism or teeth clenching is not something that people are aware of. They just wake up with tooth pain, ear ache, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ), sore jaw muscles and headache without knowing why. Such symptoms have been related to situations where parts of the teeth are crushed away, or to circumstances where the gum tissue, the surrounding bone and also the tooth enamel are damaged. Such problems develop into severe ones, where the teeth can fall off if bruxism is not treated in time. People with bruxism find out from their relatives (husband or wife) who hear them grinding the teeth while sleeping.
