invisalign/braces with TMJ and clenching
Are any of you going through braces/orthodontia? How is your orthodontist dealing with grinding/clenching? I am in Invisalign, and my orthodontist said that the invisalign trays will protect my teeth even if I grind. I am not convinced. Although it may be protecting the tooth structure, I can still feel it in my jaw and I can still feel pain in my teeth when I wake up in the morning. I am already dealing with bone loss (possibly from a bad bite), and am worried that the clenching will just make it worse.
