... I have had more luck with seeing my chiro than from any dental treatments thus far.

A good tmj specialist should be able to provide a splint that can help ease the affects of clenching and should be able to refer you to a chiro... (8 replies)
... Well - I was thinking more of a rotated atlas not really a compressed or herniated disc in the c-spine - but more of an alignment issue - which can happen when one has tmj.
