They make special guards that you where at night for grinding your teeth. I to have tmj mine only bothers me while getting dental work done. And they either have to do a little bit of work and then give my jaws a break and rub them or use a bite block to take some pressure off the jaw. Or for some people muscle relaxers have helped didn't help me much though. Also doing daily excersises by pulling down on your bottom teeth and jaw to stretch out the muscles may eventually help.
