Teeth Grinding

Does anyone know a good way for me to stop grinding my teeth in my sleep? (When i slept over at my friend's house she told me that i kept doing it) i'm sure i don't do it to bad, but i don't want to ruin my teeth. Any suggestions are welcome! thanks! =]

Re: Teeth Grinding

Melissa....you are grinding your teeth because your bite is
off. Go see a dentist and tell him you are grinding your teeth.
You do not think you are because you are doing in your
sleep..everyone does it to some extent, but you need to make
sure you are not wearing down your teeth. He will fit you for a
nightguard that will protect them at night. Karen

Re: Teeth Grinding

i too grind my teeth,in my sleep ,i never used too .but lot of time its due to being stressed or worrying

the dentist will fix you with a night guard .to wear at night .i have been made one
but with my problems with teeth ,.when i take it off it feels like my teeth are coming out and feel uncomfortable but thats because i have trouble with my teeth (which my present dentist says he cant see ]

are you stressed out about anything?

good luck

Re: Teeth Grinding

Hi ....stress does not cause you to grind your teeth....people
can be highly stressed and do not grind. You usually grind
because your bite is off and your jaw is in an uncomfortable and not a relaxed position. When you grind at night you are
not aware of this and you do it so your bite will be right and
your jaw will relax. A nightguard that the dentist fixes for you will not stop the grinding but it will protect your teeth.
You need to go to a dentist who understands neruomuscular
dentistry and find out where your bite is off and they can make a orthoic device or a bite device that will correct your
bite. That will stop the grinding...stress excerbates the
grinding but it is not the cause.....Karen

so stress isnt the cause of grinding your teeth? hmm ,.well seems like my dentist yet again,telling me load of rubbish ,and blameing his work on my stress,i thought so as i feel my teeth are not straight ,the crowns he has put on are big ugly things,and one side of my mouth is or seems longer teeth than otherside

thank you legally blonde i just got to find a decent dentist around where i live is hard
