Dental and Oral Health (Adults)
I think I have TMJ disorder and would like to know how to correct this problem and prevent further pain. I have tried Celebrex with no relief. Ibuprofen 800 mg helps make it manageable but does not fix the problem. Gum and taffy makes it much worse and gives me horrible headaches and ear pain so I`ve been trying to avoid those. Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!
You may benefit from a bite guard. See your local dentist.
