What is a good treatment for TMJ?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011
Q.

Last march i noticed a small lump and pain in my upper right gum, had xray done at dentist to reveal upper impacked wisdom tooth, I was 34 years old. Went to the maxillofacial hospital and was told that it didnt look like it would cause any problems and that most of the pain was TMJD and not from the tooth, alothough I tend to disagree, so its been a year now and not a painfree week has gone by. The wisdom tooth has now cut through the gum and my dentist can now see the cusp of the wisdom tooth and the shape through my gum, the pain is unbelievable at times and hurts in my nose and face, my two back teeth feel sore and feel like there is pressure on them, im now awaiting another appointment at the hospital to have it looked at again, but im afraid he will try to blame the pain on TMJ!, do you thing all this pain is from my tooth? I never had this pain before the lump in my gum was discovered. I really want it removed.

I have suffered with TMJ for a number of years, are there any long term solutions?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Justin,

I have suffered with TMJ for over 4 jears now. I get terrible tension headaches that just won’t go away, neck pains, ear ache, stiff hands. I’ve gone through 1 wash out of the joint surgery, volarol painkillers which caused my stomach to bleed and caused an infection, valium which I’ve refused to take after it changed my personality, 3 botox injections (after two my smile got paralysed). Now I’m taking 150mg – 175 mg of Nortryptyline and also undergoing accupuncture which doesn’t seem to help much. I would love to find a longterm solution for my problem as I really can’t stand taking so many drugs for the rest of my life and my headaches are back and whole face feel tense. I am looking for help that will cure my problems once and for all. Can you help? Have you had many succesful stories of people with the same problem? I just don’t want to undergo another surgery and find out that it doesn’t really help to cure my pain.

Regards,

My teeth are extremely senstive after crown and veneer treatment. Why?

Thursday, May 12th, 2011
Q.

hi Dr Mark

i would like to ask you regarding to a problem that i have with a crown and veneer. i have just fited a crown and veneer recently but the problem have started since the day i fited them. with the veneer tooth i cant even bite at all, and if i touch it hurts like a bruise in a body. the crown one i feel a gap in the right hand side of the tooth and everytime i breath i feel pain because of that or eat smth cold or hot it hurts like a nerve. i have been several times to my dentist which thinks that everything is perfect and try to find the cause to other teeths. well for the crown one i use to have it before in crown but the dentist decided to replace it with new one for the veneer to match better. i must emphasise that when this tooth was on crown before didnt had any problem and felt like your own tooth.i m not using this teeth(crown and veneer at all) as they both are painfull and is a bigg thing for me as i cant chew nothing. could you please let me know your opinion in that!
