Apparently I’m a Grinder…a BAD one!

I have been grinding my teeth for a while…apparently. See I have no clue that I do this while I sleep. I don’t get regular headaches because of it, I don’t catch myself doing it — but I can see my teeth slowly being ground away! It’s scaring me now, so I’ve decided once again that I better wear my mouth guard. One because it cost about $400, two because I can now actually see the groove in my teeth getting worse, and three because yesterday my teeth were so sensitive (even though I brush with Sensodyne toothpaste) that I could barely eat!

I don’t know why I grind all I know is I’m getting worse, not better…and I’m pretty sure there isn’t a way to repair your teeth after the damage is done, so my mouth guard is becoming my best friend at night, I’m sure to my husband’s dismay (it’s not the most attractive thing and I can barely talk with it in). I hate it. It’s uncomfortable and occasionally I find it in the morning, not in my mouth but somewhere in my bed. But I really don’t want to damage my teeth anymore than I have already have so I’m stuck with it.

Any other “Grinders” out there? Tips/tricks/help???

    Jade it must be hereditary 😉. I am a pretty bad grinder also. I too have to wear a night guard. I grind so bad that I actually fractured a tooth (so make sure you wear your night guard even if it is ugly). I fractured my tooth when I was taking a break from my night guard. Unfortunately I don’t have any tips or cures. If you find one let me know.

Your life is a time to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all aspects of you. Tinker with shit, pack light && travel far. Explore, love a little, smile a lot, && never, ever touch the ground. It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself & to make your happiness a priority. It's necessary!
