Bruxism since almost a decade


Does anyone here else deal with Bruxism? I have it for almost 10 years (started when I was 15/16) and it never really stopped.

I have since then used a Guard/Protecting thing and its a part of my body now after using it for that long time. Of course, I went through a lot of them. After you get a new one, its maybe better for a week or two and after that, you just use it for not ing up your teeth more but:

-I have so much headaches and "verspannte" Muskeln especially my whole face feels so tense.

What I already did: Mouthguards, Physio (which helps a bit for sure), medication, botox.

All those things help for a bit, but I will still ing grind my teeth every night. The underlining problem is not going away and people telling me: "Dude its mental so you need to relax" won't help either.

I read about: "neuromuscular dentistry" also on an old thread here but I couldnt find a dentist doing this in Switzerland. All the dentist I visited said: More than a mouthguard we cant do".

If anyone found a solution or a help in the right direction, I would honestly pay you a free dinner in whatever restaurant you chose.

Yes, im desperate.

I used a baby teether to break this bad habit. It still happens sometimes but not as serious as before.

Re: Bruxism since almost a decade

I don't have experience of this, but osteopathy is great for muscle tension and realignment.

I've been wearing a guard for some 20 years, and just like you, it's now a part of my body. So much so that I can hardly sleep if I'm not wearing it.
