Sort of not by choice.
Once again he was grinding his teeth so loudly in my ear it woke me up for the third time tonight and I literally balled my fist up and almost swung at him.
Not that I did hit him. But right that second I really wanted to,
It’s the only thing about his sleeping patterns that piss me off. Though I do have a serious hatred for mouth noises in general. They get me seething mad. And it’s not just grinding his teeth, it’s like he’s chewing in his sleep. And then the smacking noises.
I’m kind of at my wits end as to what to do.

Night guard! Look up bruxism. It’s not good for his teeth and jaw so he shouldn’t do it anyway. It’s plain unhealthy. lol

Ear Plugs, i cant sleep without them now. My Fiance breathes really oddly at night and if i dont wear ear plugs i lisen for the breaths!
Mouth guard is the other option. He will wear out his teeth if he grinds them too much. Tell him to go see a dentist and be fitted for a guard. They arent pretty but will save your sleepless night and his teeth and headaches he might get if he keeps grinding.

Yeah… without some type of guard or possibly a sedative (probably not ideal for many reasons), aside from muscle aches and headaches, he could really destroy his teeth. Not just enamel, but over time he could physically wear away his teeth. Like grind them down, chip them, loosen them, expose nerves. Eventually dentures could become necessary. Translates into extremely expensive visits to the dentists. In extreme cases it can get to hearing issues and hearing loss.
It sounds like it’s a nightly thing, so in all seriousness, he should go to the dentist and check the current damage and then try and get a solution to the actual grinding itself so it doesn’t destroy his teeth.

Yep, I agree with others..make him go see a doctor or dentist. And if it bothers you that much, you should sleep on the couch until he does!
