Common Questions and Answers about Teeth grinding mouth guard walmart


Avatar f tn Any head injury may cause teeth grinding. I had a TBI and I am not sure I am grinding my teeth in sleep (bcuz I wake up with dizziness, headache, fatigue everyday/all day) but planning to go to a TMJ specialist at some point.
10069532 tn?1407594111 You can get a sports mouth guard and boil it and mold it to fit your teeth and then wear it to bed. The dentist told me to do that for my Fiance instead of getting them made specially for him.
Avatar f tn It *****. The dentist suggested a get a mouth guard but I catch myself grinding my teeth during the day too. Some days I would wake up with the worst jaw and tooth pain. It's been pretty good lately though. If you just grind them at night then you should invest in the mouth guard.. It would probably help you.
Avatar n tn About a year ago I started clenching my jaw and grinding my teeth in my sleep. I realized I was doing this after waking up a few mornings with horrible headaches and pain in my jaw. My dentist fitted me for a mouth guard (which I wear every night) and then things seemed a little better. Well for the past 2 months I feel like I am doing it more than ever. I wear the mouth guard every night but I am waking up with jaw pain. Is there anything else I can do or take to alleviate this?
Avatar f tn My mother is in the 7th stage of her Alzheimer's and started grinding her teeth on a regular basis but won't allow anything to be put in her mouth like a mouth guard and if we were to try gum she would probably swallow it as she seems to swallow everything that she puts in her mouth these days and we have tried to entertain her at the extended care facility - but her attention span is very short these days. Any other suggestions????
Avatar f tn UGH Have a new symptom, excessive teeth grinding/clenching. I have always grinded my teeth at night, but now I do it all day, it's gotten to the point where it's because very uncomfortable and painful. I literally can not stop, no matter how hard I try. I understand that this could be related to anxiety, but sometimes it literally happens all day on days where I have no anxiety. Anyone experience this???
1445161 tn?1312085507 I have no experience of teeth grinding but I have heard there is a mouth guard you can get to protect your teeth ,I think if you put your question into the search engine you may get some answers.
601114 tn?1220533411 teeth grinding is something that can be fairly common for children and adults. Often, people grind their teeth when they are stressed out about something or anxious. It can be difficult to address this issue with a 4 year old though. Are you aware of anything that may be causing some anxiety? A new routine like beginning pre-school, a move to a new location, house, etc? If it really becomes a problem, you can take him to the dentist and they can fit him for a mouth guard...
Avatar f tn I recently chipped one of my front teeth in my sleep and it has a further splinter from my bruxism. I also have intense TMJ and a couple of my teeth are flattening from this. My ortho said my teeth were fine and a mouth guard isnt necessary but I've been feeling like he isn't very good at his job.
Avatar f tn Grinding would be evident because of wear to the teeth, so that's something the dentist can find evidence of if you were grinding. But with clenching, not so. I've been told my teeth have all the anatomy of textbook teeth. Perhaps it would be worth a try to wear your guard in the afternoon, starting prior to the time the pain usually starts up? I found out from my dentist that even swallowing can cause many, many pounds worth equivalent in pressure on the tiny jaw joint.
899169 tn?1242617019 Maybe you did not pay attention to the original post, but no 4 or 6 year old is going to wear a hard nightguard. Soft nightguards only make things worse. KLT83, grinding in children is nothing to worry about. Their mouths are going through constant changes (jaws growing, losing teeth, getting new teeth) and the grinding is the body's way of trying to balance everything. Most children stop once a majority of their permanent teeth are in because they develop a healthy tooth balance.
4658567 tn?1364142123 The dentist will probably recommend a mouth guard. Her teeth will become more prone to cavities and weak gums the longer it goes on.
6441382 tn?1381325896 His doctor gave him flexeril to help with relaxing but it is not working. We tried a mouth guard but he will not keep it in. The grinding is severe, I tried looking at his teeth, they do appear to be damaged. His dentist only suggested a mouth guard but it is not the answer. Is there anything else to try. Please, we need help.
Avatar n tn I have habit of teeth crunching or teeth grinding during sleep in thenight...how can it be stopped?
Avatar m tn What can I do to stop my teeth grinding problem at night beside custom making a month guard which cost alot of money?
Avatar n tn Chronic teeth grinding can result in a fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth. The chronic grinding may wear their teeth down to stumps. You can wear a mouth guard that's available in most sports stores but if it continues, you should see your doctor. Good luck!
Avatar f tn t the tooth that had a root canal last October or my heart - it was because of grinding my teeth so he sent me to buy a mouth guard from Walmart. After a few weeks the jaw pain became unbearable so back to the dentist I went, he said it was TMJ and to keep wearing the mouth guard. Any recommendations for the pain? It's like a migraine affecting my left side of neck, jaw, and up to eye.
250084 tn?1303307435 Having had two teeth extracted a week ago, I can tell you a bit about teethaches.<(JK) These tooths, JK, were soo painful, and sooo far gone, from fine, ( less than a year prior), that they had to get gone. With all the meds, we take for sx from HCV, and for sx of tx, it's a wonder that any of us dry mouthed heppers have any teeth left at all. 'Oasis' Moisturizing spray for your mouth does help alot, to prevent such rapid decline of otherwise healthy teeth.
4405063 tn?1354071904 my son keeps grinding and clenching his teeth, my friends told me to go and seek for an advice but i dont have enough budget..can't afford to go to dentist regularly..any suggestions on how my son will stop grinding his teeth? thank you so much!
Avatar f tn Your dentist can fit you for a mouth guard to help. Once the clenching and grinding can be brought under control alot of your symptoms should disappear. Night time clenching is the hardest to diagnose because unless you have a partner that can attest to it, it's hard to know by oneself. It appears you have addressed the middle ear infection, now you need to get to a dentist and address the clenching. It can cause alot of pain. GOOD LUCK and do let us know how you make out.
Avatar f tn I sometimes have pain at the top of my jaw joint. I have a long history of grinding my teeth at night but cannot wear a guard as I pull them out at night in my sleep. Does this sound like TMJ? I also notice that when I am anxious or angry the pain REALLY gets bad even tho I make a conscience effort not to let my teeth touch. I gritted my teeth so badly that I cracked my teeth from my bicuspids to my next to the last molars on top on both sides and had to have them pulled.
977806 tn?1249067346 One (or both, who knows) of the TX drugs causes bruxism, grinding your teeth in your sleep. Think it's the riba. The grinding can make your jaw hurt in the morning. I ground through a gold crown on TX. See if your dentist can make you a biteguard (also called night guard) so you don't ruin your molars while saving your liver.
Avatar n tn It sounds as though you are clenching and/or grinding your teeth in your sleep. A mouth guard may help. Good luck.
86075 tn?1238115091 Thought I had a tooth problem but dentist said nope, you got great teeth but you are grinding them. Seems when the body is under stress this happens. Gave me a mouth guard molded from plastic to wear at night which helped. After tox I stopped doing it so much. Still do it too much though.
Avatar m tn The reason the fitted guards are so much is a lab tech or the dentist has to spend a long time making sure the guard not only fits your mouth, but also balances how you bite. If your bite gets off too much with a nightguard you can wind up with TMJ problems. Most OTC nightguards are also soft plastic, which encourage more grinding/clenching. A dentist made guard is hard plastic, which does not encourage your jaw to grind on it.
