Bruxism is a fancy way of saying you are Grinding, Clenching, Clacking or Gnawing your teeth.

Bruxism is defined by the American Dental Association as: The parafunctional (other then normal function) grinding of the teeth. 

More clearly defined by the Mayo Clinc, Bruxism (BRUK-siz-um) is a condition in which you grind, clack, gnaw or clench your teeth.

  1. Anxiety and Stress can cause Bruxism

Heavy workload or something in your personal life stressing you out? 

If so, this could cause you to unknowingly grind your teeth at night. 

For some relief, try doing something relaxing before heading off to bed.  

Reducing your stress load may in fact help relieve some of your bruxing.

  1. Some people grind their teeth without feeling symptoms

Yes, it’s possible to grind your teeth without symptoms. 

Children especially.

This happens when a trip to the dentist yields no evidence of worn/cracked teeth.

However, each night you can clearly hear the night time activity emitting from the afflicted sleeper.

  1. Bruxism affects around 40 million people in the United States.

40 Million People?  That’s a lot!

Roughly 13% of the population in the United States suffers from bruxism so you are not alone!

You are more likely to grind your teeth than to be left handed (about a 10% probability). 

Bet you didn’t know that!

  1. It probably annoys your partner.

Bruxism can cause an uncomfortable grinding noise that can be quite loud.

It may even accentuate snoring. 

There’s nothing worse than trying to sleep when it sounds like a jet engine is about to take off. 

Your partner will certainly let you know about this.


How can I help prevent my teeth from permanent damage due to grinding, clenching, clacking or gnawing?

If at all possible try and reduce the cause of your night time activity.

While doing that, wear a night guard!

There are over the counter solutions that typically fit poorly.

Opting for a custom fitted, thin profile night guard is the best long term solution to protecting your teeth.

Impact Offers 4 different types of custom night guards.

Our grind guard is specifically designed to balance out your bite and be super comfortable.
