Should I find a new dentist?
Also, I grind my teeth really bad at night and have been needing a mouth guard. I went to CVS and got a cheap one but it doesn't work that well and is uncomfortable and I wanted one professionally made. I also have tmj and my jaw locks up randomly and clicks all the time. And little pieces of my teeth are chipping off from the grinding. I told my dentist this and that I'd like a mouth guard and she was like "no first you need to get braces, then you can get a mouth guard"
I have one crooked tooth on the bottom of my mouth but it doesn't bother me and I really don't want braces.
Should I switch dentists?
