I wear a mouth guard for grinding so my teeth don't get much air at night. Could that be why they feel so dull?

I wear a mouth guard for grinding so my teeth don't get much air at night. Could that be why they feel so dull?

No: If I understand your question / concern-- your guard covers your teeth so you feel that prevents air from contacting your teeth? The reason teeth may have a "dull" feeling is sometimes due to plaque accumulation. When you brush your teething in the morning, after you have removed the guard, do they still feel "dull"? If they still do, then see your dentist.

Could someone accidentally swallow a "boil & fit" teeth grinding mouth guard?

Could someone accidentally swallow a "boil & fit" teeth grinding mouth guard?

I doubt it: If you are talking about the ones that cover your entire upper arch, then that's pretty impossible. However, there are some versions out there that are very small and only cover a few teeth. That, while remote, could be a possibility...But still pretty uncommon.

I grind my teeth all night. My teeth are getting damaged & I get headaches. What can be the cause and what can I do to stop it? Buying mouth guard.

Not really: There are many types of mouthguards for grinding and clenching. Over the counter ones actually may be too thick and throw the muscles into more spasms. Dentists can make custom made, well fitting mouthguards, either upper or lower (i like the lower ones.) the guards can be made of soft plastic or hard acrylic...Depends on severity of grinding. For daytime clenching, other types are indicated.
