Do You Wear A Night Guard?

Do You Wear A Night Guard?

So i reccently discovered that maybe my TMJ is causing some of my migraines. I have been recommened to wear a night gaurd. Does anyone one have a favorite brand of night guard that they bought and wear? I really need one that isn’t bulky.

I have been fitted for 2 of those. I just can't wear them. I have the fear of choking on them during the night. they taste bad. plastic taste and smell. I hope it works for you

everybody gets told to wear them. I was told I grind my teeth but that was when I was a kid. the best way to know is to go see a dentist and ask if he sees damage to the crowns of the teeth. I don't have any damage so I beg to differ with these doctors that say migraines are caused by grinding teeth. just my opinion. I hope it works for someone out there. they just scare me. I have a fear of eyelash curlers too. LOL

I have never worn one, but I grind my teeth. I’m afraid I would be like some others and I would spit it out. My mother wore one when I was little and I remember thinking she looked like a football player.
