Do You Grind Your Teeth While Sleeping?

At some point in your life, you’ve probably caught yourself breaking a sweat or clenching your jaw in a stress-induced situation. It’s normal and noticeable. However, what’s more concerning is when this form of anxiety seeps into your bedtime in the form of “bruxism”. Bruxisum is known as the unconscious grinding of teeth due to the involuntary rhythmic clenching and contractions of one’s jaws. It’s more common than you think, for according to research by Colgate, approximately 70% of the population experiences this at some stage in their life. It’s quite literally a headache, because according to the Bruxism Association, teeth grinders are thrice as likely to suffer from constant headaches. Moreover, if it occurs consistently or over a prolonged duration, it may cause your teeth to eventually wear down, fracture or even deteriorate.

When you go to sleep at night, the muscles in your body relax so they can begin to repair themselves to keep you healthy and active every day. For some, these muscles relax to the point where they fall back into the upper airway and block the flow of oxygen from coming in. When you stop breathing during the night, your brain responds by partially waking to send signals to the respiratory system to work harder to get past the obstruction. These stops in breathing usually last for around ten seconds and are often followed by snorts, gasps, or choking sounds as a person’s body fights to resume breathing again. While snoring can be harmless, it can also be the sign of a more serious medical condition known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Left untreated, sleep apnea has been linked to many serious health conditions including heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke and other serious health issues.
