I know a TMJ specialist. He's from Loma Linda Univ ,CA.
Dr Stanton Appleton.
Yes, let the specialist try adjusting your bite by shaving the teeth. They won't remove so much that it causes any injury---they will take off mere microns of enamel and that may do the trick. Ask for a muscle relaxant that---it should help. Also use warm moist packs on your tmj---it's very soothing and will help the pain. Try a chiropractor if all else fails. Make sure the Chiro has tmj training. Good luck.
This Dr Nick DDS has been the best I have seen so far.. I have yet to save enough to go to him but I will..
Where are you located. Dr. Patricia Richard in Fairfield, CT stopped my horrendous nerve pain with a sphenopalantine block. She is an MD, DMD, Acupuncturist nd specializes in craniofacial problems. Great doctor!
