How to Prevent Teeth Grinding

I would wake up in the morning and would notice my jaw would be very sore. Additionally, I would notice that when I ate, I would get a shooting pain in my jaw.

Turns out I was grinding my teeth when I was sleeping. My girlfriend confirmed it as she caught me a few times in the act.

To remedy this, I sleep with my retainer on. The retainer I use was made for me after my braces were taken off 6-7 years ago. I found that after wearing this for a few nights, my jaw was no longer sore.

Obviously you may not have a retainer, you can also use a sports mouth piece. They are a few bucks and you can mold them to your teeth.

It may feel weird for the first night, but after a bit your jaw will feel much less sore.
