Is it an auto-immune disease?
What do these terms have in common? Tooth Grinding is the aggressive
wear of the enamel and dentin from one jaw to the opposing jaw’s tooth structures. Auto-Immune Diseases are essentially dysfunctions where your body attacks itself as if it were a foreign invader. These are always of a soft tissue (bone is also considered soft tissue) nature. Teeth on the other hand are hard tissue. In fact the enamel of the teeth is the hardest structure of the human body.
