Teeth grinding - Bruxism

“The mechanical principles on which Osteopathy is based are as old as the universe” - Philosophy of Osteopathy Teeth grinding (Bruxism) is in an involuntary habit of clenching or grinding in a back-and-forth or sideways movement of the top and bottom teeth against each other.
