 If stress is causing you to grind your teeth, ask your doctor or dentist about options to reduce your stress. Attending stress counseling, starting an exercise program, seeing a physical therapist, or obtaining a prescription for muscle relaxants are among some of the options that may be offered.

Your dentist can fit you with a mouth guard to protect your teeth from grinding during sleep. If a sleeping disorder is causing the grinding, treating it may reduce or eliminate the grinding habit.
