FAQ

We recommend that you discuss your symptoms with your primary care doctor, dentist, or other healthcare provider.It's a good idea to bring your Pain Tracker and QuickSplint. ® Two other options: you can also schedule a telehealth consult with an Orofacial Pain Specialist or search for providers near you, at FaceMyPain.com.   The progress that you have made with Speed2Treat will provide helpful diagnostic information to determine whether you need physical therapy, a specialized oral appliance,imaging, medication, or other types of treatment.

If you notice brux marks on the surface of your QuickSplint, discuss this with your dentist.  It is common to grind and/or clench even when you are not in pain.  Discuss what you observed wearing the QuickSplint and your experience with the jaw exercises and focus on correct tongue posture.

Simply put, when you're in pain, you want to be out of pain as quickly as possible. Speed2Treat® is designed to "put out the fire" - which means reducing pain amplification and taking steps to minimize your condition from progressing into chronic pain. We designed the Speed2Treat® Home Healing Kit because there was no clear, drug-free treatment plan for acute head, neck and jaw injuries.  

Every day, patients consult an Orofacial Pain Specialist for different reasons: a chronic condition that originated with head, neck and jaw pain from wisdom teeth extraction; whiplash or concussion; or a surgical procedure with intubation.

Waiting too long for treatment can make it progressively harder to change unconscious oral habits (clenching and muscle tensing) and more extensive procedures may be required to improve your neck and jaw mobility. The longer you wait the more distracting your condition: your symptoms can increase, as pain may spread from a consistent headache to shoulder and neck pain. At this point, it becomes even more confusing to know where to go for help - a dentist? A physical therapist? Pain medication?

Early intervention is so important to reducing your neck and jaw pain. Once you learn Speed2Treat's simple, self-care steps, you'll know exactly what to do at the onset of pain from an injury or flare-up. These self-care steps can also help to keep you focused on your healing until it's fully resolved. 

It is difficult to know who will recover naturally in two to four weeks compared to who will need extended treatment. Speed2Treat® is here to help you and as many people as possible, at an affordable price. 

Speed2Treat® is specifically designed to help reduce pain pathways by instituting sensory changes in the jaw joint system, including upper cervical musculoskeletal structures. Speed2Treat includes a customized QuickSplint oral appliance, as well as a hot/cold therapy face wrap to offer potential relief from the irritation, and to quiet or "confuse" the sensory input. The 4-Week Care Plan gives you self-care measures that help in healing and keep you focused on your condition until it is fully resolved.

Your pain and stress responses are unique and vary based on your injury intensity, medical history and resiliency factors. We designed pain education and coaching to support your and mitigate stress. Stress and pain become a vicious cycle, especially if you leave an ER with the instructions to "rest for four weeks".

No. Please go to the Emergency Room or make an appointment with an Orofacial Pain Specialist (see FaceMyPain.com for a provider near you). 

Approximately 50-70% of the US population experiences jaw popping at some point in their life, without pain or progressive damage. Jaw popping is a clinical conclusion, not an illness.   

QuickSplint Specific Questions

Yes.  It can be used for dental emergencies and acute pain as it relates to TMD, a sprained jaw, a tension headache, or other facial pain. QuickSplint® is also an effective emergency option for a patient who has lost their appliance and needs an occlusal guard while a new one is being fabricated... That said, NEVER fit QuickSplint® over loose or broken teeth. 

QuickSplint® may not be suitable for all people, which is why it is a short-term, disposable product combined with other treatment options in the Speed2Treat® Home Healing Kit. QuickSplint may not be beneficial if you have jaw mobility greater than 60mm. QuickSplint should not be fit on or over broken or loose teeth. QuickSplint is not for emergencies involving swelling. 

QuickSplint® can be fit for either upper or lower teeth. We recommend that before you start mixing the putty, you try the tray on your upper and lower teeth and bite down to see which is more comfortable for you.  

No more than four to six weeks. You may not need to wear if for the entire period. If you find it is helping you (better sleep, less clenching, grind marks on the surface) you should show your QuickSplint® to your dentist. It might be beneficial for you to transition to a long-term oral appliance.  That said, not all dentists do “splint therapy” so contact us if you would like help finding a dentist in your area, or go to FaceMyPain.com to find a dentist who specializes in splint therapy. 

One risk associated with wearing QuickSplint®: it does not cover ALL of your teeth. Sometimes your back teeth can shift over time. If this occurs, you may not bite evenly when you close your teeth together. 

QuickSplint® is a first step in treatment for most people. Some people, however, cannot tolerate any device in their mouth. Some people need a few days to adjust to the change. If you have tried wearing QuickSplint® at night and it is creating more pain, stop using and try your best with other components of the Speed2Treat® Home Healing Kit. QuickSplint was designed for short-term use only and is disposable.

During the day, we recommend that you perform the jaw exercises, gently, as much as possible. This will help you retrain your brain to keep your teeth apart during the day. If you wear the QuickSplint® during the day you are missing this opportunity for improvement.

Studies show that 80% of patients who brux (grind their teeth) are not aware of this behavior.  Independent of a head, neck or jaw injury, and near the end of your 4-Week Care Plan, it's a good idea to discuss the grinding with your dentist. They can determine an appropriate, long-term device that is custom designed to protect your teeth and supportive structures from situations that create breakdown and tooth wear. Bring your QuickSplint® to your next dental appointment and discuss how to protect your tooth enamel with a mouthguard designed for bruxism.

If this happens, pull all of the putty out and use your remaining putty to remake the QuickSplint®. DO NOT attempt to glue the liner back into the tray.

DO clean your QuickSplint® daily by rinsing thoroughly under tap water, shake the excess water and air dry. When needed, use an ultra-soft toothbrush and water to gently clean your QuickSplint.  You may periodically disinfect your QuickSplint by soaking in a half-and-half mixture of mouthwash and water for 10 minutes. DO NOT clean your QuickSplint in boiling water, denture cleaner, or soak it in hydrogen peroxide.
