I'm not sure what kind of splint it is. It is a hard acrylic one that fits on my bottom teeth. He adjusted the bite and also thinned out the area over my 2 back molars, since they are still sore (that's where my problems started). I've had this splint for about 4 weeks. Although it is the third different kind I've had in about 2 years.
I know that I'm not as bad off as some of the others and I'm trying to give this new doctor time to get this fixed, but after 2 years and the pain seems to get worse at times I've about had it. My husband went to a meeting for work last night and when he came home he could actually tell I wasn't feeling good. He usually can't tell unless I complain.
I go back to the doctors in 2 weeks so hopefully the pain will subside over the weekend.
