i really need to find a mouth guard, what brand did u get
good news folks!
i bought the only one that Target had, which is a really cheap but REALLY GOOD one! (it is called "up and up," which is their store brand one). I just tried it last night!
Keep in mind that years ago my dentist made one for me using the shape of my teeth. He gave me one that completely covered my entire upper teeth. IT SUCKED! I wanted that thing out of my mouth every night! OUT OUT OUT!
This one I bought at Target is really SIMPLE! It does not cover your entire mouth! It is only two small flat pieces that go between your mollars (so they cannot go down on each other). They are connected by a small long piece that wraps around the front of your teeth. You can wear it on the top or the bottom. I paid like 12 bucks!
I tried it on the top but I hate things on the top. I kept trying to push it out.
I tried it on the bottom and it settled i nicely!
I was salivating for like 10 minutes but that finally went away.
I eventually just stopped trying to clench and relaxed myself with an open teethed mouth.
I can feel today that it did good for me! And it stayed it all night!
Only problem is that my mouth is very dry probably for keeping it open.
But I like this one. I hated the dentist $100 one.
I do believe i have one another battle against TOS! Your days are numbered TOS!
