... I've been researching more tonight and found a good list of Finnish specialists focusing on bite physiology. I've now got the referral in hand so can choose which one to see. I'm going to try to see someone with good qualifications and experience. It's a bit tougher here though, it's not 'normal' to call up and ask to speak to the specialist. In Australia I'd do it in a second... (7 replies)

... Ladies and gentlemen, I do appreciate all the comments. Thelma-Louise thanks for checking with your dentist. With my NTI, yes in the beginning, while I did not wear it 24/7 I did wear it sometimes during the day when the muscles felt tight. I couldn't help it...it felt good. Why would I turn down relief? I would normally carry it with me and put it in when I felt pain... (13 replies)

... y guess is he will send you to an OS to get a tomogram to see if you are displaced. Not sure why but most dentists seem to think tmj is only caused by a joint or condyle problems which need to be addressed by surgeons when in most cases the tmj is caused by bite issues. ... (9 replies)
... Yes - I have the severe body pain as well. From what tmj drs tell me it means there as been some cranial and cervical derangement resulting from the tmj.

I cannot stress enough... (27 replies)
