Mouth guard for jaw clenching - Any experience?

Hi, I'm new here,

I'm to be fitted for a mouth guard at the dentist's in early January for jaw clenching / Temporo Mandibular Joint issues.

Apparently they used to be fitted on the upper teeth, but state-of-the-art practice is to fit them on the lower teeth.
I assume you only wear it at night.

Does any one here use one? Or tried one without success?
Thanks for your feedback!
