Tongue surgeryTongue surgery can help with bruxism by removing the frenulum, or the band of tissue that attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth. This band of tissue can be very sensitive and can cause the tongue to be pulled back into the mouth when the teeth are clenched. Removing the frenulum can help to prevent the tongue from being pulled back into the mouth.

GrindcareBiofeedbackGrindCare is a breakthrough solution for people with bruxism. It measures precisely how much you grind your teeth, and can then reduce the grinding while you sleep. GrindCare works by registering muscle activity and sending a mild electrical impulse that interrupts the grinding.

The GrindCare App allows you to visualize grinding or clenching activity detected by the BUTLER¬ģ GrindCare¬ģ device during sleep and track improvements over time.

Data taken from the Grindcare ¬ģ manager software showing little effect of the Grindcare device in reducing parafunctional activity. Distribution and support stopped end of 2013.

  1. tip: try magnesium supplementation. there are studies correlating magnesium deficiency with conditions related to bruxism, such as anxiety and muscle tension. In any case I think the risks of magnesium supplementation are low.

  2. Try reducing coffee intake! The science seems to be fairly conclusive that high caffeine intake is associated with bruxism.

  3. I fixed my sleep apnea using a Velumount device, which is simply a piece of wire you stick in your throat before you go to sleep, and it keeps the important part of throat unblocked during the night. One of those things that truly deserve to be called “life hacks”.
    Learning how to use it is a lot of “fun” (expect to spend half of the day vomiting until you learn how to insert it properly), but afterwards it works like magic.
