Hi doctor,

What is the best mouth guard used for teeth grinding? What is the cheapest way available to treat underbite?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Teeth grinding affects dental health. It is a cause of attrition. If stress is the cause for grinding the teeth, then do regular exercise, yoga, and meditation. Avoid drinks that contain caffeine. Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking, if you have the habit. Take a sufficient amount of water. The best night guard is fabricated by the dentist, after taking an impression. Your dentist fits the mouth guard to protect your teeth from grinding during sleep. There are many methods available for the correction of an underbite, which is cheap and best. Please see your dentist.
