Cool

I am not sure about the popping sounds but I do know that you can bite down on your splint. try not to clench or grind with it. They tell me to keep my tongue in resting position ( tongue barely touches behind top front teeth at all times - except when eating or talking).

Hey There,

Clenching is holding your teeth together really tight with them touching. Hope that splint works good for you!
