    @ Philip ya never hearda flittin ? kinda like a butterfly flits around from flower ta flower ? @ Cesar, Ive had the same problem since I was real lil .its called bruxism and its usually from stress . it gave terrible headaches and i ground my teeth down to the nubbins and have tmj problems. i went to the dentist and got braces and a splint and composites and its all better now . you can also get mouth guards otc that arent nearly as expensive.
