24/7 headgear?

Hi guys, about a month ago by orthodontist put me in 24 hour headgear wear. I may only take it out to eat so otherwise it must stay strapped around my head. Anybody else in full time headgear?

Re: Bite Plate Issues/Too Loose?

As long as its not falling out it should be working fine. Mine was loose for months and didnt effect my time wearing it

Re: Can my earache be due to elastics?

I have had a face mask 24/7 for 2 months and never experienced that before. Possibly the elastics

Re: New to Invisalign

Invisalign is great and you will only get used to it. I am on 27/41 trays and 16 attachments so far. Elastics are a pain but even with braces you will need elastics

Re: Pain from headgear? Normal?

It is completely normal to feel pain when you first get your headgear. The more you wear it the less it hurts. I wear mine 24/7 with elastics and it now feels normal
