If you regularly grind your teeth, you might be suffering from a relatively common condition known as bruxism. There is also a possibility that your teeth are misaligned. Signs of bruxism:

– Unexplained headaches or jaw pain.

– Worn-down enamel that is particular to certain teeth.

– Physical issues such as an uneven smile or a growing number of cavities.

”Teeth grinding, also referred to as bruxism, is an unfortunate common habit.”
