My dentist prescribed a night guard recently and now that I wear it, I have had ear stuffiness, jaw, neck, and throat pain. There was no pain before using the guard. What should I do?

Try this: Try to go without wearing the appliance for a couple of nights, if your symptoms remain == contact an otolaryngologist (ear, nose ; throat physician), then it is probably not related to the guard. If they go away, contact your dentist and bring in the guard to have it evaluated. ...Read more

My four year old has huge tonsils. She snores/ breathes heavily at night, but has no ear or throat pain. Should I take her to a pediatrician or spec?

My four year old has huge tonsils. She snores/ breathes heavily at night, but has no ear or throat pain. Should I take her to a pediatrician or spec?

Breathing abnormally: I would bring her to see an ENT if she has pauses or hesitations in her breathing. Watch her breath for a few minutes at night. If the snoring is regular, and does not have long pauses you may be ok. However if you judge any breathing irregularity (in the rate of breaths), make a move on your phone and go see the doctor. She may need treatment for sleep apnea. Large tonsil in themselves may be ok. ...Read more
