Seek dental help: There are various reasons we grind. You need to see a dentist trained in finding out the reason. Various things you may need include having your bite fixed, a night guard, an nti appliance or be treated for sleep apnea as some of the possibilities.

Appliance therapy: Your dentist can make you an appliance that will sometimes assist in breaking the habit of grinding. The other benefit of the appliance is to prevent damage to your teeth as you attempt to clench and grind. Reducing the stress in your life can sometimes be a factor if you find your grinding and clenching has escalated.
