Teeth grinding in sleep

grind their teeth while sleeping for several years. This is my secret shame. However, I share it with at least eight to ten percent of adults who suffer from bruxism. It is defined as an involuntary, unconscious and excessive grinding and clenching of teeth. "Forces" which in this case acting on the teeth, gums and joints, explains Dr. Mary Sović dentistry, there are three times higher than in chewing. - There are two types of moves: crunch, which involves movement of the lower jaw, and sometimes can be quite loud and silently squeezing in which there is no movement of the mandible. In both cases, spend teeth become sensitive. The situation is gradually deteriorating, and at the end of the 50-year-old patient can be found almost entirely toothless jaw which required prosthetic reconstruction - says Sović. Bruxism is not a disease but a sleep disorder, according to the frequency immediately after sleepwalking and snoring. - The exact cause of grinding teeth is not known - said Dr. Gilles Lavigne, a professor at the University of Montreal dentist. In the sixties he developed the theory that bruxism is the bodys response to the problems of connecting the jaw, but the theory has fallen into the water during the study. As the cause of bruxism is then blamed on stress, but it is not explained by the fact that a significant number of people who are obviously under stress, but do not grind their teeth while they sleep. Recent studies show that bruxism is due to the action of dopamine, but not for that there is no strong links. In the literature as possible causes listed smoking, alcohol and caffeine. People who grind their teeth, dentists recommend placing a splint that will prevent damage to the teeth, but will not cure the bruxism. Desperate "fix" want to get rid of your embarrassing secrets, and some resort to relaxation methods like yoga, exercise, therapy, hypnosis and acupuncture, and for some drugs such as anxiolytics, who allegedly helped in some cases.
