| | Carol_In_California/ear sufferers? What type of splints do you use?
After X rays the dental hospital has diagnosed me with a muscular not joint problem with severe ear symptoms. It's a pretty reputable dental hospital so I hope I can trust their diagnosis, I know sometimes X rays are read wrong, although the specialist did seem v, informed and confident. I'm on a waiting list for them to make me a splint for clenching. In the meantime I'm using an NTI splint that I got in a moment of I need to do something now desperation - but it doesn't seem to be making any difference at all. I think it's probably better for other tmjd related symptoms.
Just wondering what type of splints the people who predominantly have ear symptoms have had any success with. Were you diagnosed with muscular or joint related tmjd? Did you use re positioning splints or splints for clenching?I guess I'm wondering if there's a pattern with people who predominantly experience this problem in their ears - i.e muscular rather than joint related. Carol_In_California, I know you had a lot of success with your splint - very curious what type this was and what type of tmjd you were diagnosed with, as my symptoms are pretty similiar to those you have described.
Many thanks in advance,
