From the information you have given i recommend further evaluation of your teeth and tmj by an orthodontist and surgeon. Correction of any misaligned teeth and use of a soft splint would relieve your tmd and associated pain. Also an evaluation by a speech therapist is necessary to identify the core cause for your speech problem.
consult with orthodontist first. (there is no such specialisation called neuro muscular dentist) an orthodontist will be best equipped to evaluate you.
get a second opinion too before you start treatment, since you have already gone through the treatment process unsuccessfully once.
Since u are having joint problem in your tmj..
U will be asked to go for a cbct/X-ray followed by a fabrication of a reprogramming splint for 6 months..
Followed by Ortho treatment if necessary
There is no one called neuromuscular dentist.. where as few orthodontist like us specialise on tmj problems exclusively.. u can meet them...
Visit your orthodontist and get your occasion evaluated.
