Hello,
There are many causes of tooth grinding. Stress and anxiety are the commonest predisposing factors and grinding teeth are caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth.TMJ disorders, malocclusion, tooth loss, sleep disorders all could be associated with teeth grinding. Chronic tooth grinding can result in a fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth, hearing losses etc.Avoid alcohols and caffeine. See a dentist. He or she can examine your mouth and jaw for signs of bruxism like jaw tenderness and abnormalities in your teeth. Stay away from stress and seek professional help. I hope you find this information useful.
Take care and regards!
