... I have just posted to LittleBrace's topic about braces. In my case my TMJ years ago followed braces' work that was "late" (18/20 years old).

... I have no answers for you but have a few points or issues for you to consider in making your decision. Its horrible, isn't it? not to get a consensus from drs on what is best to do - it happened with me and others as well.
