Teeth Grinding - Why Does It Happen While Sleeping?
I have read that nighttime bruxism (teeth grinding) is due to psychological stress. How can this happen when you are asleep though? I mean, in order to be asleep your breathing and metabolism and heartrate must be down, so it doesn't seem like it would be possible to be in a high stress state.
I have started taking magnesium before bed (in the form of dolomite) to help with this, but I feel like I am still doing it a litttle. Any other tips besides getting a nightguard?
