Grinding of Teeth

Alternate Names : Bruxism

Grinding of Teeth | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Diagnosis of teeth grinding begins with a medical history and physical exam. A dentist who detects certain changes when looking at a person's mouth can also discover it. The person may be totally unaware of the condition, especially in the early stages. Dental X-rays can show early damage to the bone as well as to the teeth.
