Question about dental splint

I have 4 front lower teeth that are mobile. My dentist is making me a splint for these teeth. I was wondering if anyone else has this splint and does it bother you? I'm sure my tongue will keep going to that spot.

Re: Question about dental splint

I had it for 6 months or so but ended up losing my lower front teeth due to an infection, unfortunately. If done properly you barely feel or see it. It looks like a tiny picket fence and is attached behind the teeth by bonding material. It may feel a little strange at first but you get used to it pretty quickly. Its not bulky or anything and follows the same pattern as your teeth - but I do admit my tongue would play with it a bit in the beginning.
