I am suffering from TMJ dysfunction from last 2Months, The main problem is that I am feeling clicking during my mouth opening and closing.
For that problem I had also consult with one Maxillofacial /orthodontist and they had done Occlusion treatment and now they are asking for Splint for 6-8Months.
But after my Occlusion treatment I am feeling Muscle tension Headache and minor pain in my TMJ side.
(Note:- My first doctor (Mr. Manish Sharma) referred me to another doctor (Varun) for Occlusion treatment)
Please suggest whether should I go with splint or not because doctor is not sure for 100% improvement in my TMJ problem.
I am taking below medicine during my treatment:-
2). Mahagesic MR-4mg.
Splint is usually use to diagnose the tmj dysfunction.
So many times splint helps to reduce tmj pain.
