Today, I had to spend £200 at the dentist for fillings and repairs to my teeth. Why do I need them? Because I'm stressed about money and grind my teeth in the night because of it. FML

I have sleep bruxism too. After buying several custom teeth guards at several hundred bucks each, I just discovered the $30 one at CVS which works great. Yes, a useful, non-offensive, non-hateful, friendly comment from me. If you don't like it, go **** yourself. Sorry, I had to throw that in there. I got a rep to protect.

Well at least there is no crime there. The worst you guys got is drive by arguments :)

And everyone knows Americans are retards? Stop generalising. Americans arn't retards, but a few of you on FML seem to have fallen from the inbred tree..

at least our teeth don't glow in the dark :D

I have always wanted to know what that picture of the green thing is. could you tell me?

keep up the good work! Love your comments.

Hmm, Doc, are you too stressed out? Maybe you *do* need to engage in some genuine anonymous assholery more often. And because I also have a (slightly different) rep to uphold: Mr. Doe uses a $2 guard from the Sports department. Because we're cheap like that. :]

Jane- nah, I've been grinding my teeth since high school. My canines (the teeth, not dogs, silly) are ground completely flat. I tried the cheap sports mouthguard, but it was too big and uncomfortable. Alinefromme and tamiami, why thank you. I am truly honored. *deep bow* Where were you yesterday when someone accused me of being completely unlikeable?

I thought OP was Obsequious Penguin. I never learn from my mistakes. I guess I could make this comment 40 sentences long to protect my rep but I'm too lazy. Hi, IrishJane!

I think ur ******* cool, and hav a great rep

well that was just a waste of money wasn't it? you're only going to wreck your teeth again from grinding them because of the stress of the money it cost to fix them!

Shoulda just stuck a towel between your teeth when you go to sleep. ;)

And not a single person would suffocate that night.

of course they wouldn't, thanks to noses :)

yea that dentist totally filled you up...wink wink 

I agree with Doc. Try buying a cheap mouth guard first :) Im sure they sell them at most pharmacies

That would prevent the problem but not fix the teeth that were already damaged. I don't understand why OP didn't think of that when the issue first started.

Coincidentally, dreaming about your teeth breaking or falling out is thought to signify real-life stress over money. Odd, no?
