the "etc." is a slippery slope, finn. maybe we bring back phone booths?

Etc = cafe's, bakeries, places where GF eats, which can't be described as restaurant eventhough they do.

I've seen people eat together at restaurants, not exchanging a single word and constantly looking at their phones.

Unless you're eating alone. The only time I ever do fast food is when I'm eating lunch by myself, and what am I going to do, stare at the wall?

Does anyone here use a night guard? Worth it to get the custom-molded ones from the Dentist?

Costs $550 and isn't even covered by dat insurance of dental.

Ain't gonna lie, I've been known to sit at a restaurant staring at my phone.

Of course I'm reading posts by you assholes, so maybe you should be shot too

Its basically a retainer right? Unless you have to wear this night guard because you grind your teeth?

Not really a retainer, as it's not meant to alter the alignment of your teeth, but yes, apparently I grind my teeth in my sleep.

My last dentist a year ago said I grind my teeth and recommended the night guard. I brushed it off. New one this year said the same exact thing, so I'm guessing it's true.

I just don't want to have to wear a stupid "night guard" every night before bed. It sounds like a fucking adult diaper FFS.

Maybe you should stop letting yourself get buggered in your sleep, I think that will cure the grinding of teeth

I am waiting until I go to the dentist again.

My hygenist said I needed one last visit (but has never said it before)...but my dentist himself never really said anything. But it did sound like something might have changed and that this is a new problem.

If I keep grinding, maybe I have to do something about it...don't really want to pay hundreds of dollars OR wear a stupid night guard....but I also want healthy teeth.

Shouldn't your insurance cover it anyway?

GF, MrsG got one in the last year or so for the same reason. I don't know what you mean when you ask if it's worth it to get the custom-molded one from the dentist, because I didn't realize there was an alternative, but she has been happy with hers. It helped a lot with pain she had from grinding. It's also not especially clunky or anything (think Invisalign). In fact, aside from a bit of a lisp, I almost can't tell she's wearing it if she puts it in and we end up talking before bed.

Also, if they say you're damaging your teeth, do something about it before you really screw them up. I used to work with a woman who was at the dentist constantly getting things fixed from grinding. She'd done enough damage the roots of some of her teeth that she had to have them pulled. Her grille was gnarly, and she was only in her mid 30s.

My thoughts exactly.

It doesn't. It's the one thing that sucks about my dental insurance, which is otherwise very generous. Doesn't cover a single cent for the night guard, despite it being for a valid medical condition. Apparently this exclusion is very common for US dental insurance.
