In brief: New guard

I would return to your dentist and have a new one fabricated.
Most guards should last for about 5-7 years before needing replacement. Therefore, if adjusted properly, it should last you quite a long time. There are many reasons why you may grind your teeth, but the appliance you have will be the best way to protect from the adverse consequences of doing so.
