Thanks Jennifer for the reply. I was afraid that would be the case. I am hoping I won't have any tooth compression, but I really don't see how the teeth wouldn't compress at least a little over time. I am hopefully only to wear the splint for about 6 months and then slowly wean off to nightime use. However, it could be longer and if I have problems again I would probably have to go back to full-time use. I have only had my splint a little over a week, but so far I am just having more symptoms rather than less. The little bit of popping in my "good" joint is what really has me worried.
