Hi! I see a fabulous doctor in Virginia (about 4 hours from me) who is treating me for this issue. I have a retainer that I wear during the day and at night that really helps. I have also received laser therapy for my TMJ issues just recently and have heard fabulous things about it from other patients. I don't know where you live, but if you would like the name of my doc please let me know--he's AMAZING!!
