Bruxism is the term used for grinding and clenching the jaw. It can lead to damaged teeth but also to headaches, gum problems, tight shoulders and even earache. Some people are aware they are doing it as it happens for them while awake others don’t notice as it occurs while sleeping. They are told by partners but also notice the tension in their jaws when waking up.
Hypnosis can be very effective as it will release the tension that is causing the teeth grinding. Anxiety and tension are often the causes of bruxism. Hypnotherapy helps to get to the root cause of the problem and of course release it too. It also helps you find better ways of dealing with tension and coping with difficult situations.
Tension and anxiety are just some of the reasons that cause teeth grinding. Hypnosis can help you to change certain thought patterns and of course lower tension and release anxiety. Teeth grinding lets you know that your body is suffering stress and anxiety.
