… I want to ask how many today my teeth don’t know why they clash so often. Like people holding back emotions. Is it dangerous?

1 Answer:

Hello Hendry, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I will try to answer your question.

The situation where the teeth often clash, especially during sleep, is known as bruxism. It can occur while awake but in an accidental state, or it can occur when you are sleeping (unconscious). Bruxism that occurs during sleep is associated with sleep disorders.

The exact cause of bruxism is not known until now, but it can be due to factors related to physical, psychological and genetic. Anxiety, stress, anger, frustration and pressure can all cause awake-type bruxism.

Factors that cause a person to experience bruxism easily include:

1. 1. Stress that can cause teeth to grind, such as excessive anxiety, emotion, and frustration.

2. 2. Age, where children experience burxism more often than adults.

3. 3. Drugs or certain substances, such as anti-depressants, cigarettes, caffeinated drinks, alcohol.

4. 4. Family with a history of experiencing bruxism.

5. 5. Other diseases such as Parkinson's, dementia, epilepsy, gastroesophagal reflux disorder (GERD).

To be able to determine with certainty the cause of the gritted teeth that you are experiencing, it is necessary to examine both direct question and answer, and physical examination and supporting examinations if needed, therefore I suggest you be able to meet directly with a doctor so that it can be handled properly according to with the cause. Because if not handled, it can cause other complaints such as headaches, especially after waking up, complaints in the jaw joint, complaints of chewing due to the smooth surface of the teeth.

The first step you can take at home is to control stress, avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee, avoid alcohol and smoking, get adequate and quality sleep.

Hopefully my little explanation can help. Thanks.

Greetings, dr. Ciptanti.
