No. unless you count clinching teeth due to dry mouth. To protect your teeth at night, ask your dentist to provide a mouth guard, or buy one at your pharmacy. Keep a glass of water near your
bed at night and sip every time you wake.

Dry mouth, also known as “xerostomia” can lead to tooth decay and enamel erosion.
