(HealthDay News) -- Bruxism, the clenching or grinding of teeth, commonly occurs while you sleep. It can cause headaches, jaw pain and tooth damage.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests how to cope with bruxism:

  • Bruxism may be a sign of stress. To help alleviate stress, develop a soothing bedtime routine.
  • Create a cool, dark and comfortable sleep environment, and don't let work into the bedroom.
  • Sleep on your side or stomach, not on your back.
  • Get regular exercise, and make sure you get enough sleep.
