    The main thing you need to do is to find the root cause of your teeth grinding habit. Many a times stress has been linked to this habit. If it is in your case than you should engage yourself in some stress breaking activities like medidation. Else you can visit a professional stress counsellor. Stress management is usually performed through total body relaxation achieved with meditation and exercise. You can also try a warm bath and a cup of milk or chocolate before bed, it is really helpful.Ask your dentist to give you a nightguard to be worn at night.
