Avatar f tn I really hope that someone out there can/will answer this. I have been severly grinding my teeth in my sleep ever since I had a TBI in 2001. But for the past 3 months or so I have been grinding my teeth while I'm awake as well. It's like all of a sudden I'll realize that I am grinding my teeth. I would love to know if this is a direct result of my TBI and if there are any medications to help, or how I could possibly change this. Does anyone know????
187316 tn?1386356682 Aspen keeps grinding her teeth and it is driving me insane. I keep giving her things to put into her mouth so that she wont grind them because I think that it could be causing damage and dont want it to become a permanent habit. Does anyone know of anything to get babies to stop grinding teeth?
10069532 tn?1407594111 Hey ladies. Here recently, I guess I have been grinding my teeth pretty bad in my sleep. I know that after I have my baby, I will have to get at least one tooth pulled from breaking. What have you ladies done to stop the grinding? I keep waking up because my mouth hurts so bad from the grinding. :( I'm 31 weeks, and don't know how I'm going to deal with 9 more weeks of this pain.
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 have (apparently) been grinding my teeth as well at night. I have always done it when I've been stressed however the boyfriend tells me it has gotten so much worse and even wakes him up I am grinding so much!
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 n tn I have been grinding my teeth at night when I sleep and it is causing jaw and tooth pain. I recently went to the dentist where we discussed a custom made mouth piece that I would wear at night. The only problem is that it cost about $800.00!!! There is anohter mouth piece that they can make that is a "lesser model" that is about $300.00.
Avatar n tn I too grind my teeth while I'm sleeping. I also wear a splint to bed at night, however I do not find myself taking it out. I don't know anything about your life, but I will offer my opinion. I am not a professional what so ever, this is just my experiences and food for thought. Why do you grind your teeth, what is the root cause? What is going on in your life to cause you to do this? How long has it been going on and what happened when it started?
Avatar f tn Hi! About a year & a half ago I had some worrying symptoms which I believe are related to the state of my teeth/jaw but were largely ignored by my doctor. One evening, quite suddenly, the right side of my face went numb and my arms & legs started shaking. I felt a slight discomfort in my right ear which felt clogged up & I developed tinnitus.
Avatar n tn (Temporomandibular joint disorder) This is very often caused by clenching or grinding our teeth, usually during sleep, but often while awake as well. (I am a very BAD teeth clencher!) Left undiagnosed and untreated, this can eventually lead to joint damage, sometimes very severe, but often the first clue is a sore, stiff jaw, especially in the morning, pain when we yawn or try to open our mouths wide. Sneezing could conceivably cause pain.
Avatar f tn In responding to a previous question, my 89 year old mother withalzheimer's started grinding her teeth about a year ago. I've found that giving her a piece of gum to chew alleviates the grinding. She grinds her teeth many different times--I don't feel that it is always stress related.. I have even heard her tell herself to stop!
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.

411868 tn?1234707818 how do i get my 11month old to stop grittin/grinding her teeth? she has 4ontop and 2on the bottom, is this normal or what? i figured she is a bit young for doing this. my 3yr old nephew is just now doing it. when she does it i put my finger up to her mouth, she thinks it is funny and trys to lick my finger(strange child i know) and laughs. but it is like nails on a chalk bord to my ears. is there any way i could get her to stop. thanks.
Avatar n tn He said the aching from sweet foods might mean that the sweetness is getting between my teeth, into contact with the inflamed nerve (from all the grinding). I purchased a biofeedback device called GrindAlert to curb the grinding, but it will probably be a while before I begin to see results. I'm wondering why I'm still having this discomfort. I have had cavities filled in the past with no problems, but I always had the metal ones.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, anyone experiencing the teeth grinding/biting. Also I had a crazy breakout yesterday which was Wednesday, my shots are friday nights and normally my flu like symptoms are just pretty bad saturday afternoon. on Wednesday i'm at work and about 10 am i started shivering to where it was like winter. I put a sweat shirt on but felt like the meds just creeped up on me, 5 days after my shot.
2094952 tn?1334015457 My 4 month old Maltese is grinding his teeth or something. It is almost like he has a plastic pop cap in his mouth and he is biting down on it.
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???
427382 tn?1298209586 Is there any other babies out there grinding their teeth? Mady finally has her top teeth sprouting out and now she grinds them. I am debating calling the dc. but wanted to see if anyone else has the same problem.
