I had the final dental visit for my veneers yesterday. To keep the veneers from getting sheered off by my incessant grinding, I am now one proud owner of a night guard. Supposedly the night guard has 3 purposes: to keep my teeth from touching each other, to open up my jaw a little bit to relax my jaw muscles and finally, to keep my damn teeth from lapsing into a big fucking gap yet again.
After my first night with it, my jaw did actually feel different, more relaxed.
It’s just too bad I have to go to bed looking like an NFL linebacker to achieve that.
