Thread: Bruxism AKA teeth grinding

    Default Re: Bruxism AKA teeth grinding

    I have this problem too (even till today) and was advised by my dentist to wear a splint in the night. (Yes.. my work is stress... )

    http://www.bitesoft.net/

    The issue is the my grinding prob is so bad that I grinded away the plastic and need to send back to the workshop for buffering.

    The damage: $500

    But i can really sleep well and comfortable when I wear the splint to sleep. So i guess you have to see which method works best for you.

    Take care!

    Eh, guess what? I think u r right... After dinner, still hurts alot, but one hour later, the PAIN IS GONE!

    But dunno how long this gonna last, hopefully it last forever!

    Huh? U managed to grind the guard away! Woah! Anyway, thanks for the link! And, i see my pocket burning away soon after i clicked on the link! Annual depreciation=$250!

    BTW, how does it feels to have a splint in your mouth when sleeping?

    Well, well, well.... what can i say? I guess the saying by many old folks out there is quite true aft all.... In Singapore, one can die, but definitely cannot afford to fall sick.....

    Hi,

    I personally thought there was a 'smaller solution' before purchasing a night guard, but I ended up purchasing one at the beginning. Are you now using one for your clenching/grinding? A night guard really helped me kick my poor habits! I purchased one from TotalGard.com and I felt my problem was solved. I feel 100% today.

    I also put off getting the splint, but my grinding gradually weaken and crack the porcelain layer of my crown. So in the end, got worried and got the splint - damage $450.
    Into my 2nd week of using. No discomfort so far.

    unfortunately there isn't a cure for bruxism.

    where do you guys get your splints from? I'm asking because I reckon my missus should go get one for herself, seeing how I actually do wake up to her grinding her teeth (and I'm quite the sound/heavy sleeper).
    chicken fight!
