In brief: Tough situation...

I would find out from your orthodontist.
In some cases a band can be used that has a bracket soldered onto it.

In brief: Sleep tight

I assume you are talking about the de-bonding of orthodontic brackets.
If so, see if your dentist can determine the cause of the grinding. Perhaps a mild sleeping medicine might relax you. There also might be a way to prevent your jaws from meeting by wearing a small intra-oral appliance at night.
