    bruxism - bone loss?

    My periodontist and ortho insist that grinding and clenching your teeth at night does not cause bone loss unless you have ongoing inflammation. Does anyone have bone loss from grinding/clenching without gum disease? i.e. Are your gums healthy, but you still have bone loss from bruxism? They agree they grinding your teeth will hurt your teeth, but not your gums. I'm not sure I agree.
