Is there a mouth guard that you can eat with?

No: Guards should be removed before eating to prevent coughing, choking or aspiration.

NO: A mouth guard works by cushioning your teeth by surrounding them with plastic or rubber. This would inhibit normal mastication (chewing and swallowing). Don't do it.

If: If you had a badly sprained ankle that required casting, would you remove the cast to climb the stairs? If splint is new it's best to wear it 24/7, except when cleaning, and limiting yourself to a soft diet (soup, Apple sauce, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, etc.). As soon as the acute pain eases off you can begin to shorten your time in splint/orthotic.
