I got an occlusal splint about 2 weeks ago to wear at night to stop\ngrinding. After a few days I found that I can no longer chew on the\nright hand side of my mouth. The bottom teeth on that side hurt so\nmuch (only) when I try to chew. It seems to be the lower right incisor\nor the tooth next to it towards the back that is the culprit. After\nexperimenting with the splint in I found I can clench my teeth with my\njaw twisted to one side in such a way that I apply pressure to this\nincisor.\nCould this be the cause? Any other ideas? I dont know whether to stop\nusing the splint until I can get to see my dentist in about a week.
