Question: What can I do to releive my bruxism!?!? (nitetime teeth grinding)!?
ok, so I didn't even know i did this at nite till my bf woke me up and said he could hear the sound in a completley different room it was so bad!.!.!.!.so I have tried numerous differnent nite guards designed for this and the same thing happens everynite!. I'll somehow spit it out in my sleep and when i wake up in the morning the mouth guard will be lying on the floor or underneath my blanket at the bottom of my bed!?!?!? I don't understand this!. My teeth hurt really bad, i can't even eat cold stuff anymore and i have chipped teeth and tmj syndrome from this!. I was just wandering if anyone had advice on a good mouthguard that will stay in it's place!.!?!?!?!?!?!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

You need a night guard made by your dentist or orthodontist!. They fit more securely and don't fall out as easily!. Even with a professional guard, you may unknowingly remove it at night because you are not used to it!. Just be persistent and keep putting it back in every night!. It may take several weeks or months before you are able to keep it in all night!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

There is no exact cure for bruxism!. The main aim of treatment is to reduce any associated discomfort or pain and prevent the teeth from further damage!. Children tend to outgrow this habit with age!. A combined effort of both the parent and regular dental visits help to keep a check at the problem For more information on this you can read the following very informative article from a dental website

i suggest you get invisilign, if you grind your teeth with that on, you really wont be grinding your teeth, you'll be grinding plastic!. you might need to get some new ones every now-and-then because the grinding will wither away the invisilign!.

you REALLY need to see a dentist about this situation because something like grinding teeth could possibly make your teeth fall out!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
