Diagnosis needed: You need to determine the cause of your grinding problem that leads to pain. Your dentist can make you a mouth guard to protect your tissues and reduce the level of pain while the cause of your grinding (malocclusion, skeletal imbalance, muscular imbalance, stress, parafunctional habits, reaction to medication, etc) is determined. No, you can't fix this with an otc. ...Read more
