    splint/retainer

    Hey what happens if you need to wear a tmj splint, but you also wear an orthodontic retainer at night?

    Hi:
    What I did was instead of wearing the retainer at night I wore the splint. When I first started I had a permanent retainer on the bottom and the splint just slipped over it. Then I went to an upper splint and lower retainer. I will soon be going back to an upper retainer and lower splint at night. You just wear the splint at night instead of the retainer.
