Guard me

I went to the dentist today and he is urging me to get a night guard. I inconsistently wear my retainer at night already, so this would only be the bottom and I'd wear the retainer for the top. He insists it will help my TMJ issues. Since Dr. QM makes "chiropractic" adjustments for TMJ on my face every time I see him, I'm considering it.

The dentist's wife/office manager says my insurance doesn't cover it. However, my prescription that cost so damn much last year has decreased significantly this year. So maybe I have room in my medical budget to pay for it. Add it to my to-do list, I guess.


  1. I got one from the dentist that sucked and I never cold keep it in at night. The I went to SW Pain Mgmt and they gave me a better one that my insurance covered.. It solved my problem within 7-8 months. I'd try them first. I'll even be going back soon as I realize my TMJ pain is getting bad again due to stress grinding and clenching on my teeth!!!

  2. Thanks, I'll put that on my to-do list. :)
