Dear Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and for sharing your question about teeth clenching and grinding.

The clenching and grinding of your teeth is called bruxism and is defined as "the excessive grinding of the teeth and/or excessive clenching of the jaw."

Acupuncture is one of the ways to treat this condition. I included a link to an EmpowHER article that talks about this and other suggestions.

I hope you find this helpful!!
