  • I got a dental mirror and looked over my teeth and every molar is cracked vertically from one side to the other. There is no hot/cold sensitivity or pain. I am 33 years old and dont know why every molar would be cracked like this, only think I can think of is clenching my jaw from stress. Does anyone know if I will lose all my molars?

  • I am wondering if there is a relationship between bruxism and tenosynovitis in my hands? I read on one website there could be but wanted to see if anyone here had both conditions.

    external brace

    was up researching on night while sitting up late with pain and ran across a external brace. I dont tolerate mouth guards or splints at all. Has anyone tried one of these? the one i found was designed and distrubuted by a company called TempOrthotics. If you havent' heard of it look it up and let me know what you think.
  • If you are reading posts on the Tooth Grinding Support Group, you probably grind your teeth (or know someone who does). if that is the case, then you probably have a "Bad Bite".This means that your teeth hold your lower jaw in a place that makes the muscles that attach to the lower jaw unhappy.It also (in most cases) means that the balls are probably not centered inside of your ball/socket TMJ...

    Clinching my teeth

    6
    I was wondering if clinching teeth is similar to grinding your teeth. I am constantly clinching my teeth together so hard that my head and jaw will start to hurt. I do it ALL the time!! I catch myself holding my breath at the same time I am clinching my teeth. I have to actively pay attention to how I am holding my mouth to keep from clinching it so bad that I give myself a horrible headache!!!...
  • Hi there,I am new to this forum but not to Grindcare- a device worn at night that records and then provides feedback when you clench you teeth ,causing the jaw to relax and reduce the symptoms/amount of clenching.It has helped me massively over the 3 years but I have found peoples experiences are quite personal and there are certain hint and tips that some people hae found that make grindcare...
  • And my face hurting. can't seem to keep my mouth guard in.. anyone with similar problems????
  • I didn't think much of grinding my teeth ever, I feel like I have been doing it as long as I remember. Lately though I realize that it really is a problem that I need to do something about. I grind my teeth while going to bed (not sure if I do it in my sleep), I grind my teeth along to the tunes of songs I listen to, I grind them REALLY bad whenever I am really upset, Or I just grind them, just...
  • I have disc problems in my neck due to a car accident and scoliosis. I have noticed when I do something that creates problems for my neck, jaw pain soon follows. I don't know if I clench more when in pain or if it is the different posture or something else entirely but it is really annoying. I have home traction for my neck and exercises that help. Just wish I didn't add on the jaw joint pain. ...
