Got one of these from the dentist because i grind my teeth alot while sleeping.

Got one of these from the dentist because i grind my teeth alot while sleeping.
It goes on the lower row of teeth, and i can feel my jaw is a bit further back than in a normal resting position.
Is this going to cause my jaw to recede permanently if i wear it for months or years?
I'm 23 so it's not like the jaw is still growing or something i think, but if the jaw is put into another position a lot, do the muscles or mandible joints or something change?

I'd rather pay for fillings, inlays, crowns or whatever when i inevitably grind my teeth down that get a weak chin from this

    I dont have anything to add but that i got an orthotic this week for a tmj issue (displaced disk without reduction). Mine makes me feel like it's pushing my jaw slightly forward.

    The alternative is grinding your teeth down, which will definitely make your lower jaw rest more closely to your skull.
    I grind my teeth during the day and night, and my teeth are definitely worn down a lot already at 30.
    I don't worry about it affecting my appearance, but as I understand it also wear down the enamel, making cavities more likely. I don't wear mine because I find them uncomfortable, but I wish I had put it on more often.

    also go vegan and frick Israel for their genocidal actions in Palestine. May all zionists face trial when this is over.

      Would you say this makes your face look worse or better?

    I wear one of these too and it's great, otherwise I wake up with bad jaw pain. dentists are real fricks about it though, I paid so much for my "professional" one but my puppy chewed it up. got some mouth guards off amazon for $3 that do the exact same thing

        you won't. unironically worth trying a cheap Amazon mouth guard too tbh, could maybe figure out if it's actually poorly fit or if you're just not used to it. (or a mouth guard from wherever, not a shill and don't give a frick)

    Can cause snoring / sleep apnea.
    Go and get it readjusted.

      checked.
      See, the reason why i'm asking is that my dentist said this was normal with mouthguards for bruxism to set the jaw back a bit.
      He also ordered a second impression to be done because the first one was no good.
      Did some fitting and adjusting on the 2nd one by filing it and so on, and in the end said it was perfect.

      I was just wondering that maybe dentists omit the part where it fricks up your jaw and just tolerate it.

    DDS here, you're wearing that at night time only. That being said, it will not cause your teeth to recede back because of the length it is in. For instance, some people after orthodontic treatment (myself included) have aligners that we wear at night. If I stopped wearing them my teeth would naturally move around; same concept here.
    Additionally, you would rather NOT pay for things that are caused by severe bruxism. Bruxism is an event that is very short term (couple of seconds) multiple times per night that induces extreme forces on your dentition. It will ultimately lead to sensitivity and not limited to canals, crowns, etc with you eventually obtaining a nightguard because you'll be sick of going to the dentist. Utilize the custom nightguard it will make your life easier down the road.

    Hi
    First its really important to protectvyour teeth tull you find soultion to grinding.
    Long timecgrinding will frick up teeth, change muscles and can cause morectension and pain like migraine etc.

    Second, bruxism is related to stress, sometimes people are under such hesvy stress fir months thst they get ustedcto this and can not notice that their lifestyle is not healthy

    Grinding may be caused by fricked dopamine levels ie drugs, ssri orcgooning for few hours a day everyday.

    Most important

    Go to real orthodont with it and tell him about your issue

    He will offercyou michigan splint for uper teeth
    It cost much more than the on you have
    These days the are using lidar to create 3d model of your mouth and teeth and then use 3d printer to create casting mold
    After its ready orthodontist will ask you to wear it and he will adjust the bite.
    It will fit perfectly that even if you clench during sleep it will not cause any harm or discomfort

    Your dentist was like "here, chew on this plastic all night" and you were like "okay."
    That happened.

    I used to grind my teeth horribly and had a mouth guard. I actually have stopped grinding now. My jaw clicks very rarely now also. It's stress that does this.

    I've been using a plastic upper+lower that looks just like that since I got my braces off 10+ years ago. My jaw is fine.
