TMJ Jaw Joint Pain Ask The Dentist Ira Koeppel Question:
I have had two root canals and crown/tooth/root extraction plus additional gum surgery to secure a 3 unit bridge in upper right quadrant.

I have had pain over the bone area and it still continues. I have been 3 times going to the endodontist, periodontist and prosthodontist and everything looks clean. I refuse to have any more xrays and I need all of my crowns redone (25 years old).

The pain is partially sinus, and TMJ, but there is another pain invloved that triggers off my vestibular problems. It sits right on the bone above the last molar that was root canaled, I always have a third root. I am hoping not to loose that tooth. I can not have implants. ...Visitor from NY

Answer:
It seems everything was tried except for treating your TMJ issues.

I have seen patients have extreme pain and root canal after root canal but the pain still persists, and after I make them a orthotic (TMJ Appliance) their pain was gone.

I suggest seeing a Neuromuscular Dentist, one that will relax the muscles and decompress the joint area. I know that at this point you have nothing to loose and everything to gain.
