Bruxism affects about 6 million people in the UK — a condition marked by the excessive grinding or clenching of teeth. While adults and children grind their teeth when experiencing stress, new research published in the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation shows that teenagers who fall victim to bullying are more likely to grind their teeth while sleeping. The Oral Health Foundation is, therefore, urging parents to pay attention to children complaining of symptoms related to bruxism. Unaddressed, it could lead to oral health issues and damaged self-esteem.
