How does one hold the tip of your tongue ‘between your back molars?’

Wow this post means a lot to me. I grind my teeth at night and have very painful headaches every mourning because of it. I’ve been having it for years now and couldn’t find anything to make it better so I will definitely try this out, thank you. Is there anything else you do and do you know why some people grind their teeth?
