ok, doing it- for how long?

Best Answer

However long it takes to relax your jaw. If you feel your jaw clench again, repeat. If you find you clench your jaw in your sleep, fall asleep doing it too.

Best Answer

Oddly enough I've found that teeth grinding, jaw clenching, can be a symptom of fibromyalgia. I know that's not a cure, but it does explain why some people can suffer from this without it necessarily being tension/stress related.

Best Answer

I do it and hate it, stress of course. Have to keep checking for it, and stick by tongue out to the sides at times so I don't bite hard.

Best Answer

Practice controlling stress. I do zen.

Best Answer

Exercise self control.

If you grind your teeth together, your best bet is to get a nightguard for your mouth. You can get them over the counter at pharmacies, such as Walmart or CVS, or even at Walmart.<br />
<br />
If you have a regular dentist, you can also talk to them about fitting a mouthguard for you.<br />
<br />
The teeth grinding can cause them to loosen and can cause other problems.<br />
<br />
If you buy it out of pocket, from the dentist, the cost is about $400.00, at least, it was the last time I checked.<br />
<br />
You can buy a do-it-yourself night guard through CVC, Walgreens or Walmart Pharmacy, and I think they cost about $25.00 or so.<br />
<br />
It's worth a try if you don't have or don't want to spend $400.00 from your dentist.<br />
<br />
I hope this helps.

Ask your dentist to fit you with a type of mouth guard that is made for just that reason. My fiance wears one to sleep because he clenches and grinds his teeth in his sleep.

Best Answer

I wish it were just in my sleep- I do it all day long. My jaw is aching now from it, I don't realize it till my teeth or jaw start hurting.

Best Answer

Stuff a tennis ball in your mouth? Talk to a dentist or doctor, maybe there's some problem that's causing it? Cut back on caffeine to calm your nerves?

Best Answer
