Hi slmorris05

I know nothing about oral devices but if you managed without it till a week ago then I would suggest you discontinue using it until you can get advice from whoever fitted it.

If it is for snoring or apnea try to sleep on your side in the meantime.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

I am a dentist working in dental sleep medicine. It is pretty hard to answer a question like this long distance. It would definitely be helpful if we knew exactly what brand and type of oral appliance you have and exactly what was done to it during the adjustment. However, probably the best advice is to just discontinue using it and call your sleep dentist quickly for another go round of adjustments. Arthur B.
