Neuromuscular Dentistry - TMJ FAQ

Question:
Hi, I'm so glad I've found your web site! I am 28 years old and my top teeth sit out over my bottom teeth. My bottom teeth sit way back in my mouth. Some may call it Buck Teeth but my teeth at the top are normal.

I also have a clicking jaw for the past few years. I've been to see an Orthodontist and the only recommendation I was given was to get my Jaw Broke! I decided to live with my problem unless it gave me any future discomfort.

A week ago I started to get pain in my right jaw and when I open my mouth to much when I'm eating its painful! The right side of my face including my ear feels numb! I don't have any clicking now and was just wondering if this is TMJ? Should I get my jaw broken? ...Visitor from Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

Answer:
Most people with your Class II occlusion develop TMJ and headache problems. What you need to do is find someone who can help you. I would recommend starting your treatment with a Bionator appliance with your type of jaws to help decompress the joints and muscles. Shame on your orthodontist for not knowing how to help you! It's his job to keep up with these things.
