Mouth guards resolve this issue by preventing possible damage to teeth, anyways it's not exactly a treatment which could stop teeth clenching or grinding.

An oral tooth to wear while you sleep so as to absorb those forces and to get out of these problems is termed as Night Guards. This protects your teeth effectively from damage caused by clenching and grinding during sleep. Night guards are made up of harder material.
