I have been having jaw problems after having trauma to it. My dentist gave me a mouth guard because I started to grind my teeth and he said it would help my jaw. Every so often I will wake up in the morning and my mouth guard is out of my mouth, and somewhere in my bed. Why would I keep taking it out? Also, I never remember waking up and taking it out.

  • Initially when one starts wearing mouth guard, it happens like this that it comes out at night. Slowly and slowly you will become used to it and it will not come out. You can go to dentist and can find out whether it is well fitting it. You can discuss your problem with dentist and in case there is some problem in fitting  then he will adjust it. for more info on mouth guard you can read this article.. http://www.identalhub.com/article_diagnosing-and-curing-bruxism-13.aspx
