Hi!! I just wanted to chime in here and say that my current--nearly former--TMD dentist uses a neuromuscular splint and basically this approach, AND was also a Functional Jaw Ortho. He did not do all the testing that many of the true Neuro Muscular dentists do (or at least those who trained at LVI) and unfortunately, I have found that the splint I wore for nearly 4 months only made me worse, no better. I have now discontinued the splint and am trying to decide what to do next. I am also seeing a Chiropractor and massage therapist.
I hope you find the answers you are looking for. I am certainly not suggesting that NM dentistry or FJO would not work for you. Just relaying my experience thus far.
