Bruxism is a condition marked by the frequent and unintentional grinding of the teeth. This is most often done during the sleep, and it can cause a number of sleep-related issues. Patients may be totally unaware of the activity, although most will report less than satisfactory sleep during the night. Patients may also experience significant wear in the enamel of the teeth.
Medical marijuana may be useful in easing stress that may be causing the bruxism. It may also help improve the quality of the patient’s sleep.
