I do grind my teeth, my parents told me so I happen go dentist get a tooth guard it don't help long. lol the tooth guard get torn.
Must not have been a very good one then! Have you tried the soft rubber mouth guards? Doubt they could get torn in the same way plastic ones do.
I doubt rubber will last better than plastic. Nevertheless lol no I never use just let it be. Honestly I find my teeth now in bad shape but well , " let it be , let it be " suddenly recall this nice song.
Goodness, never mess around with oral health. If it’s actually affecting your teeth, I strongly suggest you see a dentist. And I do believe that rubber would last better than plastic, it’s a lot more malleable and flexible of a material so chances are it wouldn’t get scratched up or break as easily.

you can get an dentist to make a tooth guard that you wear at night.

Yes, that's normal. When it wears out, you get a new guard. It helps you because instead of wearing out your teeth and gums, it wears out the guard. According to one dentist that I spoke to, the guard may help you to reduce your grinding in the long run.
Our daughter used to grind her teeth when she was little, back then we tried using a little face towel but we were worried about her choking on her own saliva or blocking off her air passages and suffocating in her sleep. The dentist we saw at that time said the same thing, that a guard would reduce grinding in the long run. I guess she was right because my daughter no longer grinds her teeth. Either the guard worked, or she just grew up.

well true but going to dentist is expensive no doubt health is important.
It may be expensive, but I think that it’s a worthy expense. The last thing you want to do is let your dental problems pile up unnoticed and then have to pay thousands of dollars for emergency treatment or surgery. It’s happened before.

You can get them online as well. My brother in law picked up one for a few bucks on Amazon. You basically set it as per your teeth shape and then that's it - you can use it for as long as it lasts.
I’ve seen some on shopee that come with moulds for you to make your own night guard. I’m not sure how effective those are but if they actually work then they’re probably a really great, inexpensive option, as you’d be able to get a pretty good fit.

huh set it as per your teeth shape?

While I do one at Dental clinic. The dentist use a thing to mould out the shape of my teeth. Than after one week or so , I go back collect and use. This is why expensive.

I do see those in Amazon before never heard can " set it " Because due to the teeth structures is vary from individuals.
You would set it with a mould, similar to what you would get done at the dentist’s office but perhaps with cheaper, more DIY-friendly materials.

That's my understanding. That he had to bite into it, create the shape and then leave it to set.

I think that's the type that my brother in law picked up on Amazon. So far it's worked out well enough considering the low cost.

Yup, that’s the only way you could get anywhere close to a good fit.
