My jaw is clicking; what mouth guard do you recommend?

by Amy
(Foster City, CA)

I have been grinding my teeth when I sleep for over 30 years and have always worn a custom-made night guard. My jaw often hurts in the morning and I have had some clicking on the right side.

Unfortunately, over the past couple of weeks, I have noticed that the clicking has gotten worse, especially when I open my mouth wide. The top of my jaw painfully shifts to the left and I am afraid that it will lock.

Which mouth guard do you recommend? I see that the TMJ Appliance is the highest rated to deal with jaw clicking; however, your review mentions that it can increase clenching, which I don't want.

I am willing to wear a mouth guard during the day if necessary.

Sincerely,
Amy

At the very 1st, I’d favor to state thanks to you for this enlightening article. Second, I'd prefer to wonder wherever I can learn a lot more info concerning your post. I arrived right here via Bing and can't discover any associated web websites connected to this matter. How do I sign for your web blog? I had prefer to stick to your updates as they arrive along! I'd a query to interrogate but I forgot what it absolutely was... anyways, thank you very much.

Hello Amy,

Purchase the SmartGuard Elite night guard.

The clicking and popping get worse when you are more stressed and/or grinding/clenching more.

Sincerely,
