: : I have been wearing my nightgaurd/splint for 1-1/2 weeks or so. My main problems were inability to open mouth more than 1/4 inch and ear pain. When I do force my mouth open, it opens sideways. Only the left side is "working." I have found that after wearing the splint, my jaw loosens up considerably, but the right side still isn't budging. Also, when I remove the splint for a couple of hours, it goes right back to being difficult/impossible to open. Has anyone experienced this? I do feel like my bite is changing, too. Seems like I am going to have to wear this splint forever. Any advice/experiences appreciated.
: : Thanks ... Michele

: Hi Michele,
: I have had the splint, didn't work made it worse. I went to a dentist, I now have this crazy appliance hooked to the top of my mouth, and braces. I hope this works for me, it is very costly and in the outcome the doc said it wouldn't cure the problem just alleviate some of my symptoms. I hope your splint works for you. Annie

Thanks Annie - what were your original symptoms?
