TMJ, Having a hard time dealing with my TMJ issues

Posted on Friday, Apr. 23rd 2010 8:17 PM by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, TMJ 2 Comments »

TMJ and dealing with a Bite Splint

I am currently being treated for Temporomandibular joint  syndrome or other wise referred to as TMJ.  I have been fitted with a bite splint that I have to wear at night.  This helps keep me from grinding my teeth while I sleep.  Or at least that is want I am told.  It is more like I am not grinding my teeth at night because I can not sleep with the bite splint in my mouth.

I am being told that part of my TMJ issues are compounded with the fact that I grind my teeth when I am stress out or sleeping.  Well I am getting really stressed out because I can not sleep.   My jaw really hurt at times and I know I need to do what the dentist is telling me but has anyone gone though what I am now?  How did you learn to deal with the bite splint?   Advise please because right now I am Sleepless in Jersey.

    I had to were a bite splint for two years. Over time you will just adjust. It took me about a month to really get use to it. Afterwords it was no big deal.

    I know it can be such a pain but it really does help control your teeth grinding and TMJ issues.

    Try and hang in there is the only best advise I can give you. TMJ is a pain to deal with so it is best to follow the treatment plan given.

    You may want to try sleeping on your back if you can. Also maybe get a softer pillow. I hope that helps
