Jaw pain getting worse
I've had jaw pain for at least a year now and cracking sounds for several. When I went to the dentist for a checkup, he said that it was TMD and that I should get a night guard. So my parents bought me the Smart Guard Elite a week ago. I've only used it twice, but both nights I've woken up in the middle of the night with really bad jaw pain. When I wake up in the morning my jaw and teeth are sore and hurts for several hours. Should I stop using the night guard? Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
