If you think you might be struggling with bruxism, let your trusted dentist complete an oral health assessment. During your appointment, she’ll inspect the chewing surfaces of your teeth for signs of wear, and she’ll talk to you about any other symptoms you may be experiencing. The symptoms of bruxism and TMJ dysfunction include frequent headaches, jaw pain, and pain in the neck, back, and shoulders. More advanced symptoms can include insomnia, eating disorders, and depression.
