Does anyone have this and if so how did you treat it? My chiro diagnosed it and said I should see my dentist for a night gaurd at night. I am not grinding my teeth but I am clenching my jaw. A night gaurd isn't going to stop that. I'm just trying to get another idea on how to treat it.

a night guard does stop grinding and also clentching, I have tmj and have had a night guard for about 10 years...it look real cute with my blue face cream and roller, how romantic,lol

I am a clencher as well. A night guard prevents clenching of the teeth as well. It really does work - you will thank yourself and wonder how you didn't realize that all those head and neck aches were really just caused by your jaw!
