What are side effects associated with the use of an oral appliance?

Patients may experience morning soreness in the teeth or jaw muscles while adjusting to the appliance. In addition, some patients experience excessive salivation. All of these side effects improve within a few weeks of regular use and some adjustments of the appliance. Patients with arthritis or jaw joint dysfunction may have difficulty tolerating an oral appliance. These possibilities need to be discussed with your practitioner before the appliance is fabricated. Colds and allergies where the nose is blocked can interrupt the effectiveness of the oral appliance but this stops once the nasal passages are clear again.
