Dr. Spainhower, I would like to try an OTC night guard for TMJ, before investing in a custom one. I battled MRSA infections for around 5 years and lost several teeth in the process. I don't have my wisdom teeth upper or lower. On the top i'm also missing one other tooth, (right side far back). I only have 7 teeth on the lower all in a row in the front. Do you have any recommendations? Would I be able to try one of your night guards? If so, which one? Should I wear it upper or lower? I' m experiencing pain in my temple, ear and down my neck. Thank you for your time!
