Achy Jaw in the AM?

Achy Jaw in the AM? Bruxism, or grinding one's teeth, is extremely common in the US. It is estimated that at least half of the population, including children, gnash their teeth at some point in their lives. About 10% of adults grind their teeth. This is a significant problem that ages the teeth and can be extremely painful and costly in the long run. Consider this: teeth meet on a daily basis during meals, totaling about 8 minutes of actual contact. An aggressive grinder will proceed to gnash for as long as 80 minutes. The inconvenient results of bruxism range from: disturbing one and/or one's partner's sleep; headaches, jaw discomfort, and more significant jaw pain called temporomandibular
