I'm a Grindin Machine

I have ground my teeth for so many years that my molars are almost smooth. I can also see the indents where my top incisors rub against the bottom. I have tried a night gaurd but I hate them.  I know my brother grinds his too. And I have noticed that my daughter also does.

I grind my teeth as well, I sometimes awaken as I grind my teeth and have discovered it to be quite comforting..oddly enough..as bad as it is for your teeth...I believe its like I'm comfortable at that moment...I also moan in my sleep...awfully strange, but thats soothing too.

Perhaps it’s a genetic thing, or the genetic element might be whatever makes one pre-disposed to grinding, like having a stressed or highly active nature (Or stressed active thoughts).
