Teeth Grinding/Clenching Cause Bite to Shift?

I have been told by my dentist that i have "road tracks" or signs of grinding and clenching.  

Is it possible for one week of sleeping of grinding/clenching to notice a shift in my bite, causing a noticeable uncomfortable bite?

i bought a mouth guard, wore it one night and my bite got much worse, when i close my teeth my bottom touch top creating uncomfortable sensation.

thanks

Over -The -Counter mouth guard is generally ineffective for clenching or bruxism. Sometimes it can make condition worse. Seeing a competent tmj specialist is advised.
