bruxism, My daughter Jalynn and I both grind our teeth when we sleep. I now have tmj from it.

this doesn't answer the question, but my best friend in Texas was having terrible migraines, and discovered it was being caused by grinding her teeth in her sleep. You can get an appliance to help stop is.

Yup, the answer is bruxor and the condition is bruxism.

The next one is the word for a nail biter.

I miss Mitch. I bet all you folks do too.

Actually Mitch has another word for it.

Onychophagist. Can you believe that?
