Bruxism, the often unconscious habit of clenching and grinding your teeth, can run in families.  Stress is the most frequent cause.  Some children grind, but it is most common in 20 to 40-year-olds.  Three times as many women do it, yet it has also been linked with apnea – multiple cessations of breathing through the night – which is more common in men.  Male or female, whatever your age, bruxism can damage your teeth and dental restorations and cause jaw and facial pain and headaches.
