The medical term “Bruxism” is generally categorized as a sleep disorder best described in laymen’s terms as excessive teeth grinding or clenching during sleep.

While bruxism often occurs during sleep (sleep bruxism), it can also happen during the day (awake bruxism), although it’s usually not as pronounced during the day because the bruxist (teeth grinder) is awake and has semi-conscious control over the condition.
