  • What you do is teeth grinding or you can say in madical terms it is called the Bruxsm. In this the person clenches his jaw without being aware of it and the muscles become tender and painful. There is no specific reasn for this. It can be because of stress, fatigue or because of the faulty occlusion.Some times after getting the fillings if the fillings are high this habit develops. But mainly it is because of the stress. You can do some stress relieving exercises . You can visit the detist for this problem and he will make a night guard for you . You can wear the night guard at nigt and that will prevent the clenching of the jaws.
