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.
