Re: Moving my jaw back even more
Give it a few days and see how you feel. If you begin to hurt more, then get back in to see your dentist ASAP. I've never heard of anyone wearing a splint that is designed to pull the lower jaw in even further. The spasming of the muscles usually cause the jaw to be somewhat receded as it is.
My kid has worn his splint for nearly a year and a half now and is close to being 50% better. His headaches are still constant, but not as severe. Keep in mind that his took longer to work as he was dealing with displaced discs, as well. His dentist has said that it is of the highest importance to also seek alternate therapies while undergoing splint therapy. My kid actively participates in Chiropractics, PT and Massotherapy as well. All of the combined therapies (including splint therapy) have not touched his tinnitus as of yet, though. I understand that the last thing to resolve itself are ear issues.
