Discover How an Oral Appliance Relieves Pain
How we treat soreness in your jaws is we will bring you in and we’ll do an exam on you to see exactly what’s going on. What we usually do is we usually make a splint, and the splint will keep your teeth apart at night so you won’t be grinding. We’ll bring you back in two weeks, see if the splint is working. If it’s working pretty good, we do a little bit adjustments, put the splint back in there and you’re ready to go.
Added: I see a lot of improvement when they’re able to get some sleep. When they wake up—because if you’re grinding at night it’s going to make you sore and it’s going to wake you up—once you get a good quality night’s sleep, you’re ready for the rest of your day.
