Clenching/Gridning/TMJ and Gum Recession
Does anyone have gum recession due to clenching, grinding, or TMJ? If so, does it affect the upper and lower gums equally or one more than the other? I have quite a bit of recession on my lower gums (more so in the front) and have great oral hygiene, so I'm exploring possible non-hygiene causes. I often have jaw pain although I'm not aware of any clenching or grinding, but my hygienest often asks me if I clench. I am aware that I tense my jaw a lot but my teeth don't touch when I do this. Thank you for any input.
