Problems in jaw
My treatment for tmj disorder started before more than 1 year ago with splint therapy (before) and orthodontic treatment (after). The causes of my problem were excessive teeth clenching and misaligned teeth (overbite). Now I don't feel any jaw pain, jaw clicking or popping or locking etc . But even now my original bite is dismissed, some facial muscles are tight and original symmetry of my face is not restored. My questions to you that.... Can excessive teeth clenching damage my jaw joint so that it can't be treated with splint therapy and orthodontic? Will i be completely cured after this two treatment? Please please please help me with details.

TMJ treatment is multi disciplinary. Proper advice can only be given after a proper examination and clinical evaluation. Try working on your stress levels. That will help.

Hi,we cannot completely tell you the prognosis of treatment,as it is difficult to comment on the clinical status without seeing the patient.
