TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Board Index


Ok guys here it goes... I've done traditional therapies like a flat splint that a "TMJ Specialist" made for me, massages, steroids, chiropractors, and neurologists. I get very bad symptoms of TMD mostly on the left side of my face that is starting to take over my life and has been progressing for the past 4 years. I work as an IT on the phone and computer a lot about 8 hours daily monday - friday. I know this contributes a lot to my symptoms because by the end of my shift my face and head are both dying of pain and I have to take migraine medication to try and control it. The ear pain on the left side has gotten so bad I cant even hear clients sometimes and had to end up switching ears. I am a 28 year old male that is in good shape, maybe just some bad posture that I have really tried making an effort in changing.

I also go to school and I am getting worried because the pain gets pretty bad that I can not focus. My mind starts only focusing on the pain which is sometimes mental but I know that I am physically hurting also. My face is swollen on the left side and I feel like the only teeth that really touch are my left front top teeth. I have straight teeth but for whatever reason just like the two front left touch. And I don't ever notice myself really clenching my teeth that much (which is weird) although I do have the bad habit of popping my jaw due to feeling out of place.

I recently started reading into Neuromuscular dentistry and am starting to wonder if this is a good option for me. I just need a little relief off of that left joint as its starting to really impact my life. I cant go on living like this I need to find a solution! Has anyone had a positive experience with neuromuscular dentistry? I know they correct the bite which is possibly what I need. The Splint I already have prevents Bruxism but are their splints made differently than the average dentists? I have a consultation on Thursday.I am asking is because the treatment is relatively expensive something like 3500-4500 dollars. I know they use a TENS machine and create a splint (hopefully a different splint)... If needed they do orthodontics and add on to your teeth so you can rest the Joints. Anyways let me know
