    Hi all just a quick question I grind my teeth at night it seems years ago a dentist said I did but didnt recommend anything to me. Now I have been having sleep issues does night time teeth grinding cause sleep disturbance. My Jaw and head can be sore at times and my jaw pops and clicks when I eat. Would a mouth guard be good for me? Has anyone here had sleep troubles that were resolved with a mouth guard for the teeth grinding? I dont have sleep apnea been tested.

    I had a molar tooth removed a few months back.

    You should definitely try a nightguard. I've used one for years and I am 100% convinced that my teeth would never have been in such good shape otherwise. Try a soft one at first but make sure it's custom made and not too high.
