Question:

Does Medicare or private health cover any of the costs? I get headaches alot and often forget to wear ugly mouth guard

Answer:

Medicare doesn’t recognise this as a legitimate treatment for bruxism. 

Irrespective of this, it is a great investment in your teeth, as grinding can cause damage worth many thousands of dollars, not to mention the value of having good teeth.
