1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly

Third molars which almost always have inadequate room should be removed.
Perhaps your bruxism will then go away. If bruxism continues then night guard s also.

In brief: No evidence

There is no evidence that would support the notion that tooth alignment causes bruxism.

In brief: No.

Misaligned teeth mainly are the result of discrepancy between size of the teeth and jaw along with abnormal vector and velocity of jaw growth.
