Diet during TMJ problems would strictly mean eating soft diet only. There are different corrective procedures for the lroblems you mention. Please remember there is always a solution for every problem. Get an OPG and lateral skull x-ray done and post it in this forum. Even better would be to seek a dentists advice who would put you through a specialist for a sound advice.

Hi....., Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ disorders) occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw..... Treatment options for TMJ disorders range from simple self-help advice and conservative treatments to injections and surgery.... treatment should begin with conservative, non-surgical therapies first, with surgery left as the last resort.... Many a times combination of treatment are used....Consult Ent surgeon....
