: : Hello Rycheymac,
: : For adults who grind their teeth, a bite plate can be made by a dentist to wear at night because constant grinding can damage teeth in adults and later cause bone loss.
: You know I really never gave this much thought but, unfortunatly his teeth are already badly decayed. All his siblings as well.Do you think grinding may have anything to do with it???
Grinding teeth does have a lot to do with the decaying of their which then also causes bone loss if they don't already have it. A bite plate can prevent further bone loss.
