Question by sheilanagig25: Is a muscle relaxant an effective treatment of bruxism?
I’ve been trying hypnosis and night guards, but I still wake up with a sore jaw. My teeth aren’t faceted yet, in spite of a lifetime of power grinding, but I get headaches occasionally when it’s worse than usual. I’ve heard that another way to treat it is with the use of muscle relaxants. Has anyone tried it? Did it work?

Answer by SigGirl
I have mild bruxism. Meds can help, but I would suggest looking into an NTI. They’re new, relatively inexpensive and mine worked wonders!

    Ok, this is going to sound crazy, but it’s a solution that I JUST figured out.

    I have suffered tremendously with TMJ cfor over 2 decades, and it has seriously affected my quality of life, as I am sure you can imagine.

    Last week, I started putting toilet paper in both sides of my nose before I go to bed. I make sure that I can pull it out in the morning, but I put enough in so that I can’t breathe through my nose.

    This way, when I go to bed, my body is forced to take air through my mouth. My jaws CAN NOT close at night when I’m sleeping, so I can’t possibly grind my teeth or clench down hard. My pain and suffering is almost gone. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this years ago.

    The other night, I forgot to put the tissue in my nose, and the pain and headaches came right back because I spent the night breathing through my nose and clenching/grinding my jaws.
