Once bitten…

By Ben Moy - 02/02/2021 07:57 - United States - Wallingford

Today, after worrying for years about grinding my teeth after various dentists mentioned seeing evidence. Apparently, this worry manifested as subconsciously putting my tongue in the way at night, to the point where I have an open bite at 39 when I never had a problem before. I can't bite through sushi or sandwiches. FML

Damn you'd think the brain that controls your jaw and the brain that controls your tongue were like, not the same one or something.

Yeah, when I get the urge to grind, my jaw tightens so much it starts to hurt and sometimes I end up subconsciously giving in sometimes I just subconsciously clench my jaw. I try to do other things to distract myself while I'm awake...but my gum chewing habits also get so bad my jaw starts to hurt. Hopefully you can find a way to beat this or you'll probably have to sleep with a mouth guard or something. Good luck! For me, I notice I feel the urge to grind more when I'm stressed or when it's brought up. Haha, you don't know how much I wanna just do it right now, Haha. I sometimes chatter my teeth to get over a huge urge, lol. Only when I'm alone.
