    If its to expensive to get the guard from the dentist ..get one at your local sporting goods store. You will have to cut the ends off boil it I hit water. Let cool slightly then place In mouth bit down and keep in till it sets

    Ask your dentist about making a custom mouth guard for you. I have one and it works great. I believe the term (I may be wrong though) is an N.T.I. You wear it when you sleep and you can wear it during the day as well. It retrains the nerves in your jaw so that your mind doesn't tell your jaw to clench and your teeth to grind. After wearing it for a while, you will notice a huge difference. It has to be custom fit for your mouth, so it is far superior than the OTC mouth guards you get at a drug store.

    Teeth grinding at night can also be caused by acid reflux disease, so you could try taking some antacids before bed and making some dietary changes.

    Sometimes neurologists will prescribe Klonopin (Clonazapam) to take at night to prevent grinding, but the mouth guard is a MUCH MUCH better choice.
