I used the smartguard for the first time last night. It stayed in my mouth the whole night and was comfortable. I was just wondering how long it will take to feel a positive difference.
A little history: On June 19th I had a tooth extracted on the lower left side. Since then I have had trouble with the right side. Jaw pain, tenderness etc. In august my dentist fitted me for an upper mouth guard for night time use. I feel that has made my pain worse. Could an extraction cause you to have a bad bite? I am getting an implant but I need some relief soon and that is a long process. I have never had any of these issues before the extraction. I suppose I might have clenced my teeth while sleeping but not to the extent that I am doing it now. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
