What are the symptoms of bruxism?
Bruxism that occurs during sleep can be detected from the sounds made by the grinding of the teeth. Other signs and symptoms can include: muscle tightness and stiffness around the temples or jaws, which is most noticeable after sleep; difficulty opening the mouth; aching teeth that may be more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures; tightness and stiffness of shoulder muscles; worn or damaged teeth, and; soreness of (or tooth indentations in) the tongue or inside the cheeks.
