In brief: Yes
One of my "go to medications" for this problem. Medication, soft diet, antiinflammatory medications and a mouth guard are also very helpful.

In brief: Clonazepam & Bruxism
Clonazepam has shown to be effective for treating bruxism and sleep, the problems of addiction and drug tolerance make this a poor solution in the long term. TCA (amitriptyline) or AED (Gabitril) , especially those involving moderate-severe bruxism occurring during REM sleep is a better choice.
Take care.
