2023-08-30

All those years of sleeping together, do you remember the ear-piercing squeak of teeth grinding .... I can't wait to fling him a teeth grinding stick. I just want a good night's sleep, why is it so hard? Please spare me!!!


Or maybe you're just tired because you always wake up every morning with sore muscles in your cheeks and aching teeth ....


Teeth grinding is a common and frequent disease in stomatology, characteristically manifested as intermittent isotonic contraction of the jaw muscles, accompanied by regular chewing like action, can occur in any age group, children and young people are more common.


What are the causes of bruxism in daily life? How can we prevent it?


These factors can cause bruxism


 1. Occlusal disharmony is considered to be one of the main causes of bruxism.


  2、Research suggests that nocturnal bruxism is one of the manifestations of sleep disorders, and its appearance is related to the mild awakening abnormality in sleep.


  3、Emotional tension, excessive fatigue, stressful thoughts or children play too excited or overstressed during the day will often cause the night can not sleep peacefully, that is, after sleep, although most of the cerebral cortex is in a state of inhibition, but there is still a part of the state of excitation, resulting in the contraction of chewing muscles and the occurrence of teeth grinding.


  4, intestinal parasitic infections, gastrointestinal dysfunction, endocrine imbalance, allergic diseases, vitamin D deficiency rickets, uric acidosis, hyperthyroidism, bladder stress, etc. may cause teeth grinding. When children accumulate food and suffer from indigestion, the toxins secreted by bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract are absorbed and stimulated to the cerebral cortex, causing a dysregulation of its excitatory or inhibitory processes, resulting in nocturnal teeth grinding.


How can we prevent the occurrence of nocturnal teeth grinding
