Following on from the success of the first ever Bruxism Awareness Week here in the UK, the event will be running again for the fourth year from 21-27 October 2013.
Not sure what Bruxism is? Well that's what this national awareness week is all about. Bruxism is the name given to tooth clenching, or 'grinding' as it's often known, a condition that is thought to affect around 50% of the population.
It might surprise you that so many people suffer from it, but you'll be more surprised that recently there has been a shocking 20% increase in the number of sufferers.
Bruxism is often caused by stress and it can cause teeth to break, cause pain in the jaw and even result in headaches and migraines.
Throughout Bruxism Awareness Week dental clinics across the country will be holding open days so that sufferers can drop in and ask questions and get people talking about Bruxism.
Each year the awareness week has supported UK charities via donations for each Bruxism splint made up to the end of the year.
