i’ve tried a chinstrap and tape with limited success. I had mma surgery last year and since then my mouth opening issue has gotten worse. Previously, I used to open my mouth in my sleep, now since the surgery my mouth drops open the second I dose off. I’ve caught myself doing this as I’ve dosed off and jerked awake.
Since getting braces off I’ve had to wear a retainer. Its a two piece retainer that obviously stays on pretty firm. My thought is, getting some thin disc magnets and glue them to both retainer pieces and use this to keep my mouth shut.
I don’t want to ruin my retainer as it’s $500 to replace. Any reasons why this is a bonehead move? Glue safe being potentially exposed in the mouth?
