What's behind teeth grinding / bruxism?
Why on earth do some people fall into a pattern of grinding their teeth at night when they're fast asleep? It damages your teeth, makes enough noise to disturb a sleeping partner, and can leave you with a sore and painful jaw, and headaches. What possible purpose can it serve?
It's possible that the grinding action has a soothing effect, like thumb sucking. Once you've acquired the habit, it seems impossible to stop, because you don't know you're doing it. You don't choose to do it; your mind goes into autopilot and it happens all by itself.
The good news is this doesn't mean that you are destined to grind and grind until your teeth have worn away completely. Unwanted unconscious behaviors can be changed when you intervene on the same level as the behavior - the level of your unconscious mind
