    Before I go to sleep I check a few tension holding sites.

    The eyes. Are they closed tightly?
    The jaw. Is it closed tightly?
    The fists? Are they closed tightly.
    And last of of.............
    our bottoms.
    Are they squeezed shut?

    See if you can pay attention to these locations and loosed them.

    hi george,

    how do you get the tension to release from your jaw? even when i make a point of not clenching my teeth i still hold my jaw so tightly that it gives me pain. i am starting to damage my teeth. any pointers?

    Hmmmmmm:
    well lets see.
    The jaw has muscles which ultimately you control.
    But youhave to be aware when the jaw is clenched as it wants to, not you.
    I wear a mouth guard at night to stop the grinding of the teeth. The one I have was made just for me at the dentist. You get used to it as I did.
    But try to remain conscious of your jaw. Focus your attention to it if you can.
    George

    ty george, i need to get a mouthpiece. hubby got me a generic one but i have an itty bitty mouth and it is not comfortable, and it falls out when i sleep. guess i need to get a good one. i stay aware of it and relax my muscles one by one , but still catch myself during the day clenching and i can tell by how my jaw feels in the morning that it has been clenched all night. ty for the advice.

    it is called a ental Occlusion Guard

    I go mine at the dentist. They are custom made as you bite into like a plastic gue and then in a week or so he gives you the one you bit into and it is a custom impression or your teeth.

    I have this problem as well and to the point I get headaches. As soon as I can afford to I am going to get a mouth guard from a dentist before I hurt my teeth which always hurt even though I take good care of them.
