Has anyone ever had a problem with biting their lip in your sleep?!

I broke down and bought a night time "boil and bite" mouth guard, because I am literally chewing my bottom lip up when I'm alseep. I wake up with a big swollen, bloody lip! Gross.

Hi Loverly83,
I have never had this problem. Have you contacted your doctor about this? I know that I would. Does the bite gurard help? There may be some others that comes in here that may have this problem.

Hugs,
Kathy

I grind my teeth at night. I have a retainer that I wear, cause I was 30 when I got braces :shock: what a dope to let the dentist talk me into that one.

My teeth will never stay in place so I have to wear that every night when i go to bed.

But I grind my teeth. Once I shattered the retainer because I was grinding so hard.

Good luck with the mouth guard, if it doesn't work out you should check with your doctor and see if you can get to the bottom of the problem.
