Brave New World

I grind my teeth, and it ruins my mouth. It causes gum recession dontcha know. To protect the mouth, I wear a night guard, and it works great. It works great when I wear it, at least. Tonight, it's in the car, and I don't want to get dressed and trudge out there to retrieve it. It's 1am. I'm tired. Instead, a compromise if you will, I'll fall asleep biting the inside of my cheek. Hopefully that'll keep my from grinding teeth. I'll just be grinding cheek.

It could be a bloody morning.

My sister had to wear one of these babies. Hey, I say it's a great thing if it protects your teeth :-)

It does protect the teeth... and boosts my sex appeal.

How long do you have to wear the guard for? Is it like a forever kind of thing?

I have to wear one, too. My jaw joint is worn down on one side, but surgery could make it worse. So I'm supposed to wear this thing 24/7. Yeah, right.

I had to go back to my dentist and have him smooth the bottom of the guard because I ground grooves into it. He said he'd never seen that before. I told him what I tell everyone: I don't do relaxed.
