The doctor can prescribe trainers — devices that deal with various emerging problems of occlusion. They are soft, and it's easy to get used to (especially since they are usually worn only at night).
Another option orthodontic plates is silicone mouth guard. You can wear them, do not hesitate – because they are almost invisible and can be removed (of course, only on the advice of a physician) during the cleaning of the teeth and meal.
