Bruxism (tooth grinding and jaw clenching) has many effects on the sufferer. One of the most debilitating effects of Bruxism, however, may be headaches, migraines and chronic tension headaches.

A lot of us have strange habits during sleep, such as snoring, involuntary leg movements – and sometimes even talking. Another habit that is more common than you think is actually the clenching of the jaw and/or grinding of teeth – thought to affect 80% of the population at some stage in their lives.
