TMJ upsets are no joke, and they can go on to Trigeminal Neuralgia. The treatment for TN used to be dividing the 7th cranial nerve and injecting it with alcohol. What it is now I do not know, but I am inclined to do what the people above said.

You know when your teeth chatter when you're cold? Well I do that when I'm nerves or bored. I'm an odd duck, I know.

lol wasabi I do that too!

DH grinds teeth very badly, I call him old camel teeth because they are worn dorn and look like camel or sheep teeth, and I can see the dentine. He has a guard which works wonders. He replaced it this year having worn through an old one, which was a different sort. All I can say is that his was bought in UK and was nothing like $500, I guess the equivalent would be about $375 dollars. The only hassle is that the first few they sent did not fit properly, despite the mold from his teeth being sent, so it took about 12 weeks through out which time he was grinding very badly.

Thanks all for the info and replies. I think I will wait awhile but I'm leaning toward the guard at wally mart. Suppose to soak in hot water to then be pliable to form to the right size of your teeth. They are nothing like the teeth guards that are used to protect the teeth from harm while playing sports.
