Bruxism refers to the tendency to grind or clench one’s teeth while asleep or subconsciously. Over time, this issue can not only become painful, but can also result in damaged teeth. If you have been experiencing jaw pain, headaches, or have noticed damage to your teeth for which you cannot account, contact Dr. Chetan Parikh at Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS, DABCDSM at 301.235.9450 to schedule a consultation for bruxism in Rockville, Maryland.
