I’m looking for successful use cases of how you have alleviated TMJ pain. I grind through night guards, and the pain has now escalated to my temples. Any western medicine suggestions are welcome.

    Go to a proper dentist or orthodontist! Serious!! Don’t try and fix it yourself. I have had issues with my jaw my entire life, wishing you the best :)

      Currently wearing an Invisalign. It’s gotten worst.

      I used to wear Invisalign. Is your Invisalign through your dentist or ortho? If it’s through a dentist, maybe try going to an ortho

      Ortho. Next step is going to a periodontist for gum grafting.

    Botox. Find a dentist who is certified in it. It saved my life

      Botox worked for me as well; although I had to go to a specialist (reconstructive plastic surgeon) who only then really knew where to property inject in the jaw area

      Tried night guard and everything else prior to resorting to Botox and nothing helped

      Some dentists do it, it's a rarer find, but I have one in Seattle and Atlanta that do it

    Less anxiety?

    Last option, surgery. They cut up and reattach your jaw to align it to the right position.

    You might consult your doctor about beta blockers or muscle relaxants. Some people have also good results with CBD. Unfortunately underlying causes of tmj are not that easy to diagnose.

    Magnesium relaxes your muscles and helps prevent grinding. Try taking some supplements, also try getting a night guard
