How to Help Repair Teeth Grinding.
Grinding your teeth can produce MANY problems, including breaking teeth.
In this situation, I would try one of your local hospitals or even a dental school for lower cost help.
Step 1: Have the unrepairable teeth removed
Step 2: Have a temporay smile made. This may be a "flipper" or even a Snap on Smile. This can help you feel like you want to go back out in public again.
Step 3: Brush and clean your teeth everyday, constantly-keep them immaculate!
