Yes, a side effect of Seroquel is bruxism (grinding of the teeth), you can wear a dental piece to solve the problem, they are sold at sport stores, or you can have one made by a dentist.
Somnolence usually occurred during the first 2 weeks and resolved with continued therapy.[Ref]

Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Seizures, akathisia, dyskinesia, tardive dyskinesia, involuntary movements, hyperkinesia, abnormal gait, myoclonus, bruxism, hemiplegia, taste perversion
Rare (less than 0.1%): Neuroleptic malignant syndrome, aphasia, buccoglossal syndrome, choreoathetosis, neuralgia, subdural hematoma

I totally agree with masso.
My dad takes Seroquel for Parkinson's disease.
Through out the day and especially at night he grinds his teeth.
He too has to where a pharmacy mouth guard.
Unfortunately, he can only where it at night due to it's bulkiness. It's very hard to get use to.
Does however make a huge difference.
I would definitely recommend using one at least at night time.
