This is a fast video clip regarding my splint that I got for my TMJ Problem.

Please ask any type of inquiries if you're curious.:-RRB-.

This is a video about a surgical instrument given to me by an orthodontist.
I am not able to answer any type of questions on 'all-natural' means to 'heal' TMJ as well as any type of remarks regarding that will be removed.

Hi fellow aussie have you got braces put on now? if so is the tmj pain
still reduced? and were you like me and developed tmj after braces (I
stupidily skipped appointments after I got braces taken off) I go to the
dentist and my ortho in a few days and I’m guessing ill need braces again
later hopefully for less time I’m 21 at the moment

Also is that a splint designed to bring your lower jaw forward?

do i have to wear it when i eat too? and what did you do after the splint ?

Ivonne Belman December 17, 2013 0:37:56

was the mouth guard recommended by a doctor ? a while ago when I went to
the dentist I told my doc. that my jaw bone pops a lot and they checked on
the x-rays they did on me and he told me I had tmj and I needed to go and
take some other x-rays so that they can I guess give me a mouth guard or
something to put inside my mouth… I haven’t gotten it. yesterday I woke
up with one side of my jaw hurting so I put a bag of ice )as how the doc.
told me if I started to have pain) and so I started getting a head ache
from it… but after all , would it be the same if I went to a store and
bought a regular mouth guard to put it on at night?

    I am not sure if it’s the same or not. The mouth guards are used to help
    you not grind your teeth at night time and the splint is to help re
    position your jaw and strengthen muscles. How it works I have no idea but
    that’s what it is supposed to be for. I have had TMJ since I was a little
    kid around 5. But just got diagnosed almost a year ago. Wish they could
    have caught it earlier.

TrueCerulean February 13, 2014 2:22:02

so did you have to wear it 24/7? how did it go?

Rebecca Gary March 17, 2014 22:55:37

Omg! I just got my splint today and it is very big and noticeable. I
couldn’t even see yours!

    ikeabakeria May 14, 2014 9:21:00

    So sorry for the late reply! I don’t wear mine anymore but I either need a
    new one or surgery However mine was super noticeable I think it is just not
    that obvious in my videos because of my low quality camera because in real
    life you could definitely notice it! But I got used to it and after a while
    so did everyone else.

Kareign Diaz April 5, 2014 15:45:53

Hi. I’m about to have a splint this week because i have a tmj too. How
does it feel? Did it took 2 hours for your dentist to put it to you? sorry.
It’s just that i feel nervous about wearing it.

    ikeabakeria May 14, 2014 9:19:40

    Hi I am so sorry for the late reply! it did not take 2 hours for my dentist
    to fit the splint probably 20 minutes max. I hope that your splint is going
    well! xx.

    Kareign Diaz May 15, 2014 15:24:08

    It’s okay. ☺It took 1hour and 30 minutes for her to put my splint. Will you
    have braces after that too?

    Leizl 10 February 25, 2016 8:13:02

    +Kareign Diaz hello i would like to ask if this splint cured your TMJ? coz
    i’m suffering now because of that 🙁 thank you.

Allan Grams September 14, 2014 23:34:00

I have had my splint for about 3 years now and a piece of the plastic broke
off on the rear right side. I think the plastic has worn from grinding at
night which caused the break. My tmj started with locking jaw and bad
dizziness. After I got my splint these symptoms went away immediately. I
think over the years my bite may not be aligned properly anymore. I think
my lower jaw has gone backwards from where it was after alignment, which
may have caused the back on one side to break off. It was recommended that
I get implants throughout my mouth because of my teeth being badly worn,
however, I refuse to pay $40,000 for a mouth full of implants. I am looking
for someone to make me another splint as the orthodontist I used has
retired.

    Jimwell Duran November 29, 2015 0:41:51

    +Allan Grams i think tmj has something to do with bad bites that also
    affects the jaw. I am just wondering if you have to use splint for the rest
    of your life.

    Allan Grams December 16, 2015 12:18:37

    Yes, I will have to wear my splint 24 hours a day for the rest of my life,
    because If I take it out, my jaw just goes back to its original position
    and the jaw pain and dizziness returns. I found a guy that has training in
    making dentures that made me a new splint in his garage. It is shaped just
    like the one the tmj Dr. made for me and I have been wearing it for about 8
    months now and am very happy with it.

    Jimwell Duran February 24, 2016 16:02:35

    +Allan Grams it is good on u. how does it feel when u speak? any
    discomfort? and what is the difference between a splint and a mouthguard?
    my symptoms r quite different. i dont have a locking jaw but i feel my jaw
    can’t relax and it is quite difficult to breathe. it can result to light
    headedness and dizziness. i think i have to get a splint.

Tina Harris April 28, 2015 23:15:53

So is the name of your splint MAGO? maxiallary something or other? Did you
expeirence lasting relief of the locking and spasming?

    ikeabakeria July 15, 2015 6:58:03

    +Tina Harris Sorry about the late reply! I am not sure about MAGO but yes
    maxiallary something sounds somewhat familiar. I had almost complete relief
    for around 2 years but my jaw has started to play up again recently but my
    doctor assures me that it’s a different thing to last time.
    I hope my video and response has helped 🙂

Montery12 May 4, 2015 4:52:59

Hi, it’s been three years since you uploaded video: if you had clicking and
some pain due to TMJ, has the splint gotten rid of these symptoms? RSVP.
thanks.

    ikeabakeria May 4, 2015 5:14:52

    +Montery12 Hi! I will actually be posting another video in the coming weeks
    as I have to have a surgery on my jaw. At the moment we are not 100% sure
    if it is related to TMJ.
    However, I can say without a doubt after I finished my time using the
    splint I had no plain or clicking for at least a year, up to 2 years
    afterwards.

Black' N White June 12, 2015 0:49:02

Hey I have TMJ problems. I have been recently given a splint so I was
wondering do you get clicking sounds in your ears? Because I have had it
for almost a year and it’s not getting better. It’s so weird it makes me
think it’s an ear infection, but it’s not.

    ikeabakeria July 15, 2015 7:03:03

    +Miss Disguise hmm I am sorry that you have given up 🙁 It sounds like you
    have it much worse than I do. I have noticed that the pain does come more
    when I am stressed as I find that I am clenching my jaw down but I can’t
    really recommend anything else besides massaging your jaw when stressed to
    try to get it to relax and regular pain relief.
    I am sorry that I couldn’t be more help. xx.

    Black' N White July 15, 2015 7:05:03

    No it’s just annoying this stupid doctor has done this he let me open my
    mouth too wide during the extraction. Now my jaw won’t stop clicking and
    when I swallow I feel the joint area is heavy and tight. It’s very
    annoying. I don’t think there’s cure for it but relaxing.

    ikeabakeria July 15, 2015 7:11:31

    The only other thing I could recommend is finding another specialist and
    getting a second opinion. Wishing you luck. xx.

    Black' N White July 15, 2015 7:13:38

    This doctor is supposed to be the best. He’s over confident saying it will
    go and that I am making a big deal. He says I don’t need surgery. Like I
    said there’s no cure for it. I have to cure it by myself. Thanks for the
    help though xxxx

    ryad abi fadel January 18, 2016 12:44:28

    +Unknown if it has been a year it means it is not working .. If it works
    correctly, it should heal your problems in 2-3 weeks (at least you should
    feel a drastic improvement by then)

zaramayyy July 1, 2015 22:08:20

I went to my dentist today with pain, aching and clicking in my left jaw
joint and he just sanded down a couple of my teeth at the back. My jaw
still clicks. Will I need one of these? 

    ikeabakeria July 15, 2015 6:56:42

    +zaramayyy Hi, I have never heard of people getting their teeth sanded down
    for jaw clicking… I would recommend going to your GP and getting a
    referral to an orthodontist instead of a dentist. xx.

Erika Sendo July 14, 2015 11:04:50

Hey, you probably won’t see this post because you only posted this video
nearly 2 years ago but……..
Okay, I am going to the dentist soon and I have the whole clicking jaw
thing and whenever I sleep my jaw locks up and it’s a pain.
Now, dentist scare the hell out of me so I am really scared about going to
get this checked out and I am scared of getting the splint because I don’t
want it to look noticeable……..
So basically my questions are…….
Does the splint really work?
And do you have to wear it for your whole life? Because I don’t think I can
handle that if I have to wear it that long x.x

Please answer soon

I really need your help :'(

    ikeabakeria July 15, 2015 6:54:47

    +Erika Sendo Hey lovely, I know this is an old video but I try to reply to
    everyone when I can 🙂

    If you have a phobia of dentists not much of what I say will help make you
    feel better about it but please don’t stress out! If you are getting the
    same splint I had it is not invasive and yes it is a bit noticeable but you
    and everyone else will get used to it!

    The splint worked for me for a good 2 years I had no pain at all. Although
    now I have some more jaw issues but not sure if related to the splint or
    not.

    I only had to wear mine for about 6 months or so but it really does depend
    on the individual and what the dentist would prefer. However, I have never
    heard of anyone having to wear one for their whole life. I believe they are
    supposed to be short term things.

    If you have any more questions I should be online more regularly and am
    happy to answer what I can 🙂
    xx.

northerndude August 13, 2015 21:44:06

Is yours from muscle tension or teeth not lined up

Malena Lee August 16, 2015 4:25:31

Did it start to hurt over time? I’m getting a splint soon and i’d like to
know, thanks!

Emma Gray August 19, 2015 16:01:35

Just found this, I am getting a splint in 2 weeks time (got thing to
measure it today). Is it sore to wear? Also does it make you gag, I have
realky really bad gag reflexes?

Leizl 10 February 25, 2016 8:09:26

i know it’s been years since you uploaded this but i want to know if it
cured your TMJ? coz my dentist told me that if ever my therapy can’t get
rid my TMJ i should be wear this. thanks so much. i will wait for your
answer. :)

Anonymous March 15, 2016 4:25:14

Hi, I have Tmj myself and I was just wondering was it a lot of trouble to
get the splint? How much did it cost about? I really need one but I’m
afraid it with be costly.

Alexis Bouchard March 18, 2016 9:26:40

Drugs makers only like to deprive folks of alternatives to their harmful
drugs. They hate the thoughts of herbals or dietary cure for the reason it
has no profit there. The sole way for you to heal TMJ is to correct the
hidden causes, which medication is by no means the solution.

saphiraice nightfire April 28, 2016 14:09:45

was curious what a splint for tmj was and why my dentist chose an NTI
instead. I see now the splint would not have kept me from clenching my jaws
which then also lead to me grinding. that would have only helped with the
not grinding the enamel off. :)
