Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of moving the jaw that makes the upper and lower teeth rub together is called bruxism. Bruxism can occur due to various things, including:
Anxiety, tension and stress
Side effects of certain drugs
Jaw structural abnormalities
But of course in your case, you should check yourself to a general practitioner first, because the symptoms that you experience are more easily recognized by being seen directly rather than explained using words. By looking directly, maybe also while you talk, will be seen whether it's true bruxism, or other conditions that may be caused by nerve disorders. After seeing it later, it is known where you should be referred, whether to the dentist, neurologist, or even ENT doctor.
Meanwhile, what you can do is reduce the level of tension or stress with relaxation and breathing exercises if you experience it now. Also, stay away from cigarettes, alcohol, cold compresses of your jaw, and avoid hard foods. So, hopefully answering your question.
