Thanks for the suggestion.
I have one already however. It prevents you from grinding your teeth and chipping the enamel away, but the bruxism continues anyway. So the headaches as well, and the tooth breaking if the pressure is high enough.
For people in Canada: I only paid 125$ Canadian dollars in Canada for a mouth guard at the dentist's, adjustments included in the price. No government involvment, and job very well done too.
> Yes. I have this still on at night. I would have one of my dentist. Its much more comfortable than that one from the health store. Its the money worth because you can develop arthrosis if you dont do something.
> The dentist can make you a mouthguard. It costs about $200. Or you could try a mouth guard for bruxism from the drug store for about $10.

I get headaches, which I believe are caused by it. And my teeth are not made of steel... I broke a tooth some years ago due to bruxism (non-medication related), so I'd like to avoid it if possible.
