Is teeth grinding caused by pinworms?
I don’t think it’s fair to say that all teeth grinding is due to tension. It’s true that the majority of teeth grinding seems to be due to stress but there are other factors too. For example if you have a pre-existing sleep disorder (notably obstructive sleep apnoea) then you are at increased risk of bruxism (teeth grinding). A high intake of alcohol and caffiene as well as smoking also increase your risk. It’s also important to realise that whilse a nightguard will protect your teeth from premature wear as well as reduce the other symptoms of bruxism, it will not stop you from trying to grind your teeth. Nightguards are only a control rather than a cure. There is no known cure, although reducing your stress levels can certainly help in some cases.
