Yet another article from the National Library of Medicine urging people to do LESS when treating TMJ:
“What Can I Do?
Until there is scientific evidence for making sound treatment decisions, NIDCR suggests people:
Eat soft foods, use ice packs, and avoid wide yawning, gum chewing, and other extreme jaw movements. Short-term use of over-the-counter or prescription pain medicines may also provide relief.
Avoid treatments resulting in permanent changes in the bite or jaw, including crown and bridge work to balance the bite, orthodontics to change the bite, grinding down teeth to bring the bite into balance, and repositioning splints.
Avoid surgery, where possible, and if considering surgery, get medical opinions to fully understand the potential risks.”

By the way – Here’s a quick TMJ tip for you. Don’t lean on your jaw! Many people, myself included, have developed a habit of resting their head on one hand while working on the computer, reading, or doing other tasks! You need to stop doing that. It puts unnecessary strain on your TMJ and related muscles.
