Wow…... I went to my dentist for cleaning on Monday, and the technician says “What’s with your molars, a bit worn down now!” I said “that’s news to me, never been told that before, and I don’t recognize it during my sleep”. I did mention I have a bit of insomnia and asked what to do about it??
The term is “Bruxism” which is grinding of teeth together (which when awake is like nails on a chalkboard!) So, on top of all that Ive been through (3 sleep studies, U-PPP, repair of deviated septum, u name it) now this. They took impressiions of my uppers and lower and in 2 weeks time I get fit with this little rubberized spacer that fits on the front teeth keeping the rear molars from touching together. It is possible this will add to better “sleep-sleep” quality. I would have thought the sleep study would have picked up on the jaw tension scenario (as you are hooked up to electrodes here and there anyways!)
Anybody with comments, similar plight, etc??
