What are the complications of wearing a mandibular advancement device?

Jaw pain, TMJ, jaw joint pain, tooth movement, possible root canal, possible crowns or fractured teeth, headaches and gum irritation are all normal consequences of wearing an oral device nightly. Areas of irritation should be brought to our attention as soon as possible, and are usually minor and temporary. Long term problems do happen, but are not common. Overall health and breathing in sleep is a priority.

These devices are anchored to your teeth, and they may damage both natural tooth structure and crowns, bridges, fillings and any restorations.
