How to Find the Right Dentist for You

Well I was wondering what I should do about my problem I have. During sleep I am somehow biting my tongue, and like a have taste in my mouth.Answer:
Many people express their reactions to stress and strain by exhibiting some unusual oral behavior. In my experience, I have seen people suck their tongues, chew their cheeks, and/or grind their teeth. As these are outlets of nervous energy, it is not always possible to change them. Instead, I usually make a soft, resilient shock absorbing mouth guard for the patient to wear. This permits the habit to continue, but eliminates the possibility of self-injury.
