Teeth grinding and clenching (also known as bruxism) often occurs while one is sleeping. Grinding is when you move your teeth against each other while clenching is when you bite down hard. Bruxism is a method of dealing with stress, but if it is chronically done, then it can cause wear, fractures, or looseness to your teeth as well as headaches and jaw pain.
