    Question Phase 1, Phase 2 treatments for TMJ?

    I have bone to bone TMJ, where my disc is displaced so the jaw bone hits on the head bone and has been shaved down to a flat, while a normal jaw bone(condyle) should be round. The specialist I saw gave me a treatment plan on wearing an orthotic appliance 24/7 to find the right position for my jaw so it can bring some space bwtn my bone to bone. However this is a long term treatment which later on goes in Phase 2 where I have to get permanent treatment. I am not sure I was to go through all this and change my whole jaw position so I wanted to know if this is a common treatment that people do for TMJ? I feel like it is similar to getting braces, a long term commitment but at least braces are very common. TMJ treatment I am not so sure, if this is wroth it or if I should find holistic/physical therapy ways to treat and bone on bone? Any advice on these Phase 1 and Phase 2 treatments or if anyone has done this?
