Bruxism is an oral Para-functional activity in which over grinding, clenching or gnash of teeth occurs. It is not related to functions which are normal as talking, eating. It is a movement disorder related to sleep. Frequent bruxism leads to problems like jaw disorders, damaged teeth and headaches.

Sleep bruxism is considered a sleep-related movement disorder. People who clench or grind their teeth during sleep are more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea. Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.
