After extensive therapy at my dentist, my teeth and gums are now in stellar shape. The dental hygenist goes into ecstasies at how healthy my mouth is now.
Last visit I mentioned that one of my back molars was sensitive, and I that I noticed it most when I ate something sweet. She (with her 40 years experience) diagnosed I was grinding my teeth at night, and the dentist confirmed it, so I got fitted for a mouth guard.
This tiny piece of plastic fits over my bottom front two teeth and cost $600. ( :eek: ). I guess it’s working, I’ve only worn it the past two nights, but I’ve noticed my lips are chapped in the morning and it takes a little getting used to having this foreign object in my mouth. I realized the first night I was trying to jut my lower jaw forward so my top teeth wouldn’t hit it, so I made myself relax and let my top teeth rest on the little “beak” thing that sticks out.
