Sleep Issues and ADHD
Teeth grinding -Bruxism - sleep disorder
Has anyone with teeth grinding at night been able to find something that helps? I’ve tried hard braces and had to go and look for them every morning - they simply did not stay in my mouth. Every time I would fall asleep it would be OUT when I would wake up. In physical therapy they told me I needed to CALM DOWN and spend time teaching myself to CALM DOWN or they can’t help me. (Like that is going to happen… :-( )
I have found a soft brace that does stay in my mouth when I’m sleeping, but when I misplace it and can’t find it, my teeth break. (I’ve already had to have 5 root canals, 1 implant and one tooth needs to be pulled because I bit it to pieces). My Trigeminus nerve in the left side of my face has been acting up for three years and I’m pretty much at my wit’s end.
Has anyone had any success with this? Something new to try?
