TMJ Jaw Joint Pain Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
I had 4 front lower teeth extracted in 2000 for pain in those teeth. I have had constant facial and jaw pain ever since.

My MRI shows anterior disc displacement without reduction on the left and displacement on the right with reduction. I have been to MANY dentists, but with no help.

I can't wear a partial. The extraction area still burns and causes pain. I am currently on morphine, need help. ...Visitor from NE

Answer:
Your TMJ condition is probably beyond the expertise of most general dentists.

I would suggest that you see an oral surgeon and ask him whom he works with for TMJ problems. You might also look for a dentist who has neuromuscular training from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

You should look for somebody who has extensive training, not just somebody who has attended a few courses.
