It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main cause of bruxing is stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but it can also cause facial and neck muscle soreness, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) problems, arthritis pain, and dysfunction.
