Do you ever find yourself waking up in the morning with a tight, sore jaw or headache or earache? Chances are you have bruxism. This common disorder causes you to clench or grind your teeth during the night or day and can lead to jaw problems and damaged teeth. Most people clench instead of grind their teeth. More than 80% of the population is affected by some sort of TMD (temporomandibular disorder).
