Does bite block for braces cause breathing problems?
« on: 20. December 2017, 03:18:23 AM »
Hi guys I'm new to the forum, I've had braces for many years due to many reasons but besides that, I have these permanent bit blocks on both of my rear teeth to prevent myself from biting down on my bottom braces. That's fine but the bite block has been causing me problems... Everytime I sleep at night I wake up with a dry throat (I don't sleep with my mouth open) also Everytime I eat or drink something I tend to swallow alot of air making that food that I consumed come back up on me.. it's really annoying and I just want them to come off already.. does anyone else experience this problem?

Interesting. My wife has had bite stops/blocks for almost ten months. While they do make eating many foods into a chore, she hasn't experienced any dry mouth or throat issues, nor any reflux problems.

That said, she's definitely looking forward to getting the stops removed, though I suspect she'll have them for the duration of her treatment.

Thank you for giving your feedback, I thought no one would ever answer. I see maybe my anxiety and posture has something to do with it then.

Thanks.

I’m glad someone is feeling the same as me pretty much the same happens to me apart from the dry throat I tend to get more of a dry area towards the back of my lower arch and part of my throat
