Bruxism is the unintentional act of clenching, grinding or gnashing your teeth.

Bruxism affects many people, adults and children, and most individuals are unaware that they grind their teeth. 

Although some people can unintentionally grind their teeth during the day time, most people with bruxism grind their teeth while they are sleeping.
