I completed Splint therapy in June I have not been wearing it since. Just recently I have started to have pain again. Is is possible for me to start wearing my splint with out going to the Dentist for adjustments, I do not have the money if he will charge me for more adjustments.
what type of splint were you wearing? what other treatments have you done? what are your symptoms?
if you dont have the money for an adjustment, i'd try to see if you could work out a plan with your dentist - who knows, maybe he'll do an adjustment for free.
were you having problems with the splint when you stopped? because if you werent having increased pain or symptoms with it, my suggestion would be to try it again. i guess if you get worse, stop wearing it, and definitely try to get it adjusted.
As far as I know, it is a repositioning splint. My dentist said that I was done with the therapy after 4 months, I was not haveing any problems. The next step he said was to have braces but on I do not have $5000 for them. The only symptom I have is a lot of tightness (I think it is the muscles in spasm) in the TMJ area, my dentist did not really say if i have TMJD or not he just put me in a splint. All that I am certain about is that I have a overbite and a cross bite.
