TMJ Disorder need help

I have been diagnosed as having TMJD by a dentist. I have gone through 4 kinds of mouthpieces. I brake them because of clenching. I have lost several teeth because of clenching and grinding. I am always in pain. my dentist has done all he can for me. I don't know what kind of doctor to go to now. my gp said work with the dentist--no help there. any suggestions?

Re: TMJ Disorder need help

A highly trained orthodontist could help you better. Many people with TMJ seek out neuromuscular orthodontists. A good functional orthodontist with training in sleep dentistry might do well for you also. I see a Functional Orthodontist trained in orofacial pain, TMJ and sleep dentistry. The splints I've had from him are far superior than the expensive custom ones I had from my dentist prior.
