What're the symptoms of bruxism?

Symptoms of bruxism include dull headaches, sore and tired facial muscles, earaches, sensitive teeth, and locking, popping, and clicking of the jaw. Severe or loud teeth grinding or clenching that occurs during sleep or while awake during times of anxiety or stress. Tips of teeth that are worn down, flattened or chipped. Bruxism causes tempromandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), in which the cartilage around the joints of the upper and lower jaws becomes irritated. This irritation can cause pain in the jaw and ears. Headaches associated with joint and muscle strain are common symptoms associated with bruxism. During a dental examination, a dentist may recognize damage resulting from bruxism, including: enamel loss from the chewing surfaces of teeth; flattened tooth surfaces; loosened teeth; and fractured teeth and fillings. Left untreated, bruxism may lead to tooth loss and jaw dysfunction.
