Dental Health Consequences of Untreated Bruxism
If bruxism goes untreated, it can lead to more severe dental consequences, including cracks and fractures of the teeth, worn tooth enamel, and extreme tooth sensitivity. Bruxism may also cause jaw muscle and joint problems, also known as TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorders). These disorders can cause your jaw bones to rub together, oftentimes locking in place, making it difficult (and painful) to open and close your mouth.
