Re: New to all this/ still waiting to see a specialist.

it makes me feel better that I am not alone, too! My dental bridge was done 5 month ago and my front teeth shift almost continuously even since. In addition, my right side is shifting more, that has totally misplaced the midline and is causing me body pains due to muscles being in chaotic spasms.
It has all probably started with the TMD, but now my jaw is supposedly in place (according to the doctor), but the teeth movement continues. I have never had anything like that before, neither I know how to get rid of it besides braces and retainers. All this makes me mad as hell.
If in your treatment the doctor decides you may benefit from the splint therapy, use the upper splint. I am not sure if you will need braces after that, hopefully not. They cost a lot of money...
