Suggest remedy for a jaw alignment problem

I've had jaw alignment problems all my life. I have sleep apnea, teeth grind, and facial pain. I have tried CPAP for sleep apnea for months, but I don't
sleep better (I have to sleep on my right side to get any sleep). I wake chocking when I wear a Mouth Guard at night. My teeth actual grind more during
the day, especially while eating. Various doctors have tried different Mouth Guards (more then a dozen), behavioural therapy, massage for pain, and relaxation
therapy for these symptoms, nothing has work at all. The tops of my two back right teeth have broken off. I tried many times with caps, that didn't stay on. I final gave up on the teeth, which has reduced the facial pain. I've been told my jaw is misalign several times over the years, but doctors always do the same treatments, time after time(for past 20 years). Why won't they fix the problem with my jaw, instead of addressing problems caused by my jaw?

Hi,
Thanks for posting the query,

First of all the real cause is to be diagnosed.
I would suggest you not to take any stress and complete your treatment calmly.
Night Guard is the appliance to treat grinding, carefully listen to the instructions and try to follow them.
