Re: Dental Hard Night Guard
Was your orthodontist a Functional Jaw orthodontist and tmj specialist? If you have been through all the ortho and splint therapy, and still are having signs of tmj, your jaw may not be in the correct position. Also, if the nightguard is causing disk displacement, I would get a second opinion for sure. A nightguard should never cause pain and clicking. If you do want a good second opinion on your case, look up neuromuscular dentists in your area, and make sure that they practice Functional Jaw Orthodonics as well. They fully understand the muscle/jaw/teeth relationship and how they all work in harmony with each other....good luck, J.
