Q.

Teeth grinding

Hi,

I'm 23 and have been grinding my teeth in my sleep since I was very young (forever according to my sister). Is there any remedy to this? I'm worried that I'm wearing down my teeth and that I might loose them by the time I'm 40.

Thanks

speak to your dentist about a bite plate (this has been discussed previously)

I'm 24. At night when I go to sleep my jaws tend to stiffen up. What could be the course & how can I treat it.
