It sounds to me like your retainer is being used to keep your teeth in their "new" position following Ortho. work. If so, this appliance is not the same thing as a splint. You'll have to get a splint specifically designed for TMJ problems.

Oh ok, thanks. I wasn't sure and it's not like I really have anyone to ask because my doctors aren't treating my TMJ anymore. So, I am going to go to a new dentist up at school because I'm in college now.
