Question bumps around tongue caused by teeth...

Recently, I have noticed that every morning I wake up with bumps around my tongue. I have discovered that the cause of this defect is due to the edges of my tongue slipping in the gaps between my upper and lower teeth while I sleep. So I am actually biting down all around my tongue, without knowing and preventing it,causing those bumps to appear. The bumps become smaller throughout the day, and reappear in the morninng.

Is my tongue becoming oversized for my mouth? What could be a possible solution to this defect? (maybe a nightguard device?) Also i should mention that I grind my teeth.

Thank you in advanced for your input.

Re: bumps around tongue caused by teeth...

bumps due to teeth indentation is not a disease, and everybody has it.
if it is causing you pain, then obviously it is a problem.

if you are grinding so much that your teeth are flat, then you have lost vertical height,
and your mouth is over closed, giving the tongue less space, and it is pushed against the

you could increase the vertical height, but that means crowning all the teeth, which
may not be a good idea either.
