Sleeping with my retainer

I have two retainers: one like the old style, with wires across my teeth, the other looks like a bleaching tray or mouth guard, just clear plastic. I normally wear the wire retainer to bed because it feels a bit more comfortable... but last night I decided to wear the clear tray retainer to bed instead! Ughh... I woke up and my mouth felt like I had gotten braces all over again! It was soo sore! I decided to wear the wire retainer to work today... it's not bad. I really wonder why my mouth reacted like that to wearing that retainer to bed.

Anyone else wear a retainer/bite guard to bed? Do your teeth feel sore when you awake up?

My mouth guard does the same thing... I actually used Ken's dremel on a few spots to alleviate the pressure on a few teeth. Either that or throw the damn thing in the trash.

I guess it's not just me then. Glad to hear I'm normal :)

I wear a mouth guard to sleep. I used to think I was able to get with skipping one night, but nope! I only find my teeth feel tight if it's time for a new mouthguard.
