Question:
For the past four weeks I have been experiencing pain on the right side of my jaw which feels to be just under the opening to the ear canal. Often throughout the course of the day I have trouble and a sharp pain when I open my mouth.

I also have pain when I have to chew tough foods on the right side. I have pain when I try to extent my lower front teeth past my upper front teeth trying to stretch or work out the pain. Ocassionally when I wake up in the morning and close my mouth it seems like my jaws are out of alignment.

All of this is only on the top of the right side. What is this and what can be done about it? Should I see my MD or go right to a Dentist? ...Visitor from OH

Answer:
You have TMJ compression symptoms caused by an imbalanced jaw to jaw relationship. I will find a specialist in you area to help you with your problem.

It is a very difficult problem that very few doctors know how to treat. I have attached a copy of my most recent brochure to help explain this dysfunction in more detail.
