Mouth guard
Hi, I got my mouth guard last week but since I have been wearing it at night, I'm really tired during the day. Could it be because I'm still getting use to the Mouth Guard? Also my one front tooth is a bit sore after I have slept with the Mouth Guard. The Guard is custom made.

The pain could be as a result of you grinding or it could be due to an ill fitting appliance. After a week you should be used to it. See your dentist to check if fit is ok
