I grind my teeth at night - should I be worried?

Abnormal tooth grinding and clenching is called bruxism. There are many theories as to why people grind their teeth but even the experts aren’t so sure yet. It has been associated with stress and anxiety but there is also a school of thought that it is a mechanism used in childhood to help loosen baby/milk teeth that grownups haven’t grown out of.
