... Hi everyone. I'm thinking about getting Invisalign too. How fast does it move your teeth? ... (4 replies)
... Hi Suzq222, My bite is also way off. I actually developed an open bite because of the nightguard I used for many years. One dentist told me that my teeth are off by a tooth and a half. i.e. My teeth need to move that much to get my bite corrected. I've been told that the best splint is a flat plane splint so that high points on teeth can not touch others. I think my... (4 replies)
... I also have the invisalign and clench all night. It's been about 6 weeks now and nothing has improved. ... (4 replies)

... I am in Invisalign, and my orthodontist said that the invisalign trays will protect my teeth even if I grind. I am not convinced. ... (4 replies)
... Hi everyone, I was diagnosed as a bruxer almost 12 years ago, when one of my molars cracked in half...possible TMJD at that time. My jaw opens, occasionally clicks, but nothing horribly intense for years. Since then, I've had two more capped, and will probably need a fourth done soon. I've been pursuing Invisalign braces, as I don't want to put brackets on my teeth--the... (0 replies)
... My advice to you is try not wearing your Invisalign aligner for a week. Based on my own experience with Invisalign, I can almost guarantee that this is the root cause of your problem. ... (6 replies)
... its not going to permantly alter your bite or the position of your jaw. It doesn't prevent clenching but it does help reduce the impact on the joint. ... (6 replies)
... tantly in a chewing gum type motion all throughout the night and I know that my teeth do not come together properly when I bite. I have worn braces as a kid and Invisalign as an adult in 2001. I wear the Invisalign retainer on an every other night basis to this day because my teeth move within a days time if I do not. ... (6 replies)
... will not. I am taking my chances and hoping I am not grinding so much that my teeth will be ruined. I don't wake up in the same amount of pain as when I was in Invisalign and the splint, so I suppose I am on the right track. ... (15 replies)
... Invisalign and the clenching just pushed me over the edge. ... (26 replies)
... Megla, what are your symptoms? Mine have always been just in my neck, so both the oral surgeon and my dentist believe my issue is just muscular. My MRI showed some significant erosion in my left tmj, but oral surgeon does not believe my pain is joint related. I stopped wearing the bite plate because I am also now undergoing PT in my jaw muscles. This is causing some... (10 replies)
... splint too. They both made me worse. The TMJ specialists finally ordered an MRI which shows more damage than they thought. They just said it's muscle pain from clenching and grinding. Blah blah blah. But I knew something else was going on. They looked at my MRI and sent me to an oral surgeon. ... (10 replies)
... This seems to be my situation also clencher, my face is asymettric but the muscle imbalances are pulling it in that way to be asymettric. Nothing is wrong with my joint I dont have any displaced disc or any of those things so is splint therapy really right for me? Ive been to PT for tmj but it didnt really help once so how are you going about treating it with PT im not sure... (31 replies)
... s muscular...even though my left tmj is flattened and arthritic. The joint is not causing any of my is purely muscular. I believe it started with the invisalign as the invisalign promotes clenching. Megla, you had Invisalign too, right? ... (31 replies)

... Mandolyn, I have always been a clencher, hence my name, and I believe a night guard promotes clenching. I believe this clenching all night started the muscle spasms back in September when I started wearing invisalign like retainer. ... (13 replies)
... So it got worse. I am still in pain- went back to dentist to have him adjust my guard and he said I have to wear it NIGHT AND DAY for the rest of my life! This thing is NOT like avisilign, or I wouldn't ahve a problem, it's bulky and hard to talk and makes me gag a little. He said I have to stick to softer diet too but right now it's pretty much liquids only until my pain goes... (9 replies)

... Yes, this all started with Invisalign ;( well I had some popping before then but nothing to complain about. When I finally went to tufts they assumed it was just my clenching and my muscles so they made a splint (which makes it feel worse) and have me muscle relaxers which did nothing. When I went back the 2nd time they told me to wear the splint less! After I'd spent over... (5 replies)
... bably just as frustrated as me at this point. My problem is that I need to wear some sort of retainer, and the appliance was serving that purpose. I think I am clenching at night and that is what is causing the spasms. ... (9 replies)
... back in 2011. It keeps my back teeth from meeting and prevents clenching at night. ... (5 replies)
... d somewhat defensive. I initially started seeing him for purely orthodontic treatment with no TMJ symptoms. After 10 months in braces was fine and then started invisalign when the symptoms started. It took weeks to convince him that the treatment was causing the tmj. ... (10 replies)
