Can anything be done about my teeth grinding?

Teeth grinding is a tough thing to deal with.
The problem here is that most teeth grinding is done while you sleep.
Thus, you are doing it subconsciously.
Well, unless you can control your subconscious then you might be out
of luck in making yourself stop grinding all together.

So what can be done?

The only thing that can be done is an attempt to stop the damage being
done from the grinding.

Serious damage can occur as you grind your teeth.
Chipped teeth is one of the biggest things.

To help avoid chipping, and even completely breaking, your
teeth we recommend a night guard.
Its not complicated.
Its just a piece of plastic that is made to fit your teeth.
The fit needs to be fairly tight so that it does not fall off into your mouth at night.

You will still be doing the grinding but instead of grinding teeth on
teeth you are now grinding teeth on plastic.
Over time the plastic will wear out and you will need a new one.
It is however, much cheaper to replace a piece of plastic then it is to replace your teeth.
