I stumbled upon what *appears* to be a really amazing thing - "TMJ No More". It is a 50 dollar eBook that provides a really detailed 3 step program for CURING tmj.
So...my issue with it is that it seems really fake. The website is jank and the book can only be bought through her website. BUT, there seem to be positive reviews floating around the Internet and the book itself is really into holistic stuff. Plus, she does not really act like it is an overnight cure which makes it more believable.
I am really tempted to purchase it since I am so desperate. I really want help.
So...have any of you tried this or know anyone else who has??? Please share your thoughts.
I have seen this site, too. It sounds a lot like a book I bought on Amazon called "Taking Control of TMJ" by Robert O. Uppgaard, DDS. It includes exercises, trigger points, checklists, nutrition, postural habits, stress, nutrition/exercise, etc. I just received the book and it looks comprehensive and holistic...and it's under $20.
TMJ is caused by the bite of your teeth. I am a practicing dentist that have successfully treated patients for years. Chronic pain in the TMJ starts usually starts with trauma, car accidents, head injuries, loss of teeth, dental work, orthodontics. I don't care how many exercises you do, if you don't balance your bite with your relaxed and healed joint position, you will remain in pain. Robert Earl, D.D.S.
How does someone "balance your bite with your relaxed and healed joint position?" I thought that the exercises in these books and on utube are supposed to help align the jaw. If not, what does help? My dentist and doctor have given me pretty much told me to see the other one, or wear braces for five years. When I had braces as a teen, that's probably what messed up my jaw so I'm skeptical about going through it again.
Google trudenta, there are a few dentists trained in this therapy. I have found that this is the only thing that works. You do therapy on the joint, ultrasound, cold laser, micro stimulation. That gets you out of pain, then balance the bite.
