Lately I have been under a lot of stress and I notice that when I wake up, I have teeth marks on my tongue from biting it when I sleep. It's very painful and the marks don't go away. Has anyone done this? What can be done to fix it? Other than less stress, of course.
I would look into an occlusal gaurd, what they call a "Night Gaurd". It's for biting and clenching during sleep but should resolve the tongue biting issue as well. Your dentist can make it for you but, I'm a Dental Assistant and I have found even the over the counter ones to be effective.
