Unhappy I have the smallest mouth ever!!!!!!!!!

I am serious if you put my mouth up to someone elses with TMJ mine would be super small. I have absolutely no jaw room for my teeth!! It is like sooo small!! I even laugh {yah, it's that small}!!! DO any of you have this problem and if so how in the world would a splint fit comfortably in there?????

My jaw structure was too small for the number of teeth that I had, and I was SUCCESSFULLY treated with splint therapy. A splint is not "one size fits all" - it's custom made and fitted to YOUR mouth.

Oh okay,
I knew that the splint is made to fit the mouth but I was wondering whether or not they would be comfortable?? I have heard cases where they were and were they weren't. I guess it takes some time getting used to but it will be okay!

Yep..mine is the same way. My dentist told me to tell everyone to never say that I had a "big mouth", cause mine is small too! Thats why I had to have some teeth pulled and then put into braces. I had terrible TMJ prior to that, but after the braces came off 2 and a half years later...I no longer suffer from TMJ and my teeth look better than ever.
