TMJ Help needed

I am 34 male. I have jaw clicks on left side for almost 12 year now. It has got so loud and embarrassing. When I sit with family and eat something, they hear loud clicks. My wife complaints when making love. I can't kiss her freely.

There is no severe pain. I feel blurry eyes and a bit headache all the time.

When I see my face in mirror, I can feel slight alignment problem on left side (little gone outer and a swelling feeling).

Can you help me and recommend best doctor?

I can come over to UK or USA for treatment.

Thanks.

Re: TMJ Help needed

Hopefully others here that have had successful treatment of their tmj may be able to offer some advice or referrals - have you checked the sticky post entitled Great TMJ Doctors located at the top of the forum? You may need to do quite a bit of searching for a good dr - tmj seems to be a complicated condition and not all patients respond the same to similar treatments and not all drs use the same treatment methods since there are several theories regarding the source or cause of it (occlusion, muscular, joint poisitoning or actual joint dysfunction).

I bet though being in Hong Kong it is highly possible though that you may find a highly qualified dr there that may have been trained in the US or UK. You may want to search the web under neuromuscular dentistry, functional jaw orthotics, myofacial, cranio-facial or orofacial pain, tmj/tmd, etc. Many organizations have nat'l sites that provide links to referrals of drs by country and location. Some fo them are listed in the Information Archived sticky post at the top of the forum as well.
