    How my dentist gave me TMJ Relief.

    I promised myself I would post if I found anything that gave me relief from my TMJ pain. I know some have it much worse, but I had pain in my jaw everyday for almost two years. There were also weird noises in my jaw and there is some damage to the disc on one side, according to an MRI. Some days unbearable and some days just annoying. I saw two dentists, two oral surgeons, did 10 weeks of PT, went to a chiropractor, got botox (provided a little bit of relief at first) and tried acupuncture. I tried two night guards, but both seemed to make them worse and I would still grind and clench just as much. Finally, my dentist took one of my night guards (it covers my upper teeth, molded to them in his office) and added a little extra plastic under the two front teeth. This makes it so my back teeth can't touch at all and he said it also 'tricks' my muscles into relaxing, because they will only push down so hard when the front teeth are touching. After a week I am pain free for the first time in two years. Wanted to share in case this can help someone else!!
