Post Treatments for clenching???

Can someone tell me of the possible treatments for clenching?
mouth devices?

Any order of treatments you should try first?

Do an internet search for Dr. Jim Boyd and the NTI.

i got a little device that fits over my front teeth about a week and a half prevents me from grinding my teeth....It's called an NTI. Took my dentist like 20 minutes to make it for me...

I must say, I have noticed a big change in how my head feels...I still feel like I try to grind, but the after effcts of the actual grinding are definitely on their way out...try it, it's so small and I can't even notice it when I sleep. I have had no problems sleeping with it, well except for that it leaves my mouth open a bit so my pillow gets kinda drooly (I know, gross), BUT if I don't have devistating pain anymore, I'll wake up with a soggy face!!!!
