    I already have a small mouth and to see me try and open my mouth is funny.
    When eat something like a sandwich I have to shove little prices at a time.
    Then it hurts to chew because you want room to mix the food to get flavor.
    Very frustrating.

      Haha. No, i was just wondering. I don’t think nice guys will judge if they
      hear about your “handicap”.

      A big sandwich causes troubles for me too sometimes. I can even partially
      dislocate my jaw a little, when i open my mouth too wide, pretty stressful
      at the dentist I can tell you.

    Great diagnostic ability that Dr. Nick shows is demonstrated from his top
    of the line technologies including T-Scan ( and
    the BioEMG ( One of the most
    efficient and comprehensive dentists out there!

    Omg my teeth that I’ve had root canals on are sensitive too. I never knew

      If you have tmj this is the second step.. It’s the intermediate stage and
      it will most likely happen at some point. Mine started a week ago. I had
      headgear and braces and I’m pretty sure that’s the cause.

    today my jaw suddenly starting making popping noises near my right ear when
    chewing, I think i damaged something yesterday I was moving my jaw sideways
    to diagnose a tooth issue, and today all day this issue has started. No
    pain thankfully but its something I am aware off as it wont go away.

    I need to see the dentist anyway due to the state of my teeth but I guess
    this makes it more important now.

    • BloodLegend

      +chrcoluk I cured that by slightly opening my mouth and slightly pushing
      the jaw bone inner.

      January 1, 2016 at 7:04 am

      +BloodLegend And do jaw exercises everyday. That helps the muscle relax.

    I wonder why a lot of folks still believe in surgery to manage TMJ, while
    there exists a better alternative therapy that could help get rid of TMJ in
    a safer way.

    I have this disorder and it’s so irritating. Everything I eat has to be cut
    into little pieces so I can fit it in my mouth, and it has to be soft food
    too as it hurts too bad to eat hard foods.

    This is what I’m struggling with right now. My jaw has been locked closed
    for 12 days now. I’ve gone to the dr, dentist, chiropractor, and
    acupuncturist trying to get my mouth to open and nothing is working. :(

      everyday. brushing my teeth was weird. i wasn’t able to open my mouth wide.

    I’m now 15, my jaw has been locked closed since January 2015. And only now
    I’m going to the TMD clinic on September 1st, 2016. Waiting more than a
    year is excruciating. But my father needed more money, and my dentist only
    gave me braces.

    • Nick Yiannios DDS PLLC

      August 7, 2016 at 1:39 am

      INSIST on obtaining 2 things Fernanda: TMJ MRI’s in various bite positions
      and a CBCT of your TMJ’s.

      Re MRI minimally: 1.5 Tesla magnet, T1, T2, PD at MIP, IEP, and fully
      translated. Sagital and coronal views. 2-3 mm slices. If they don’t know
      what this means, find someone who does.

      Have them check growth and development on your CBCT. Your disks are likely
      displaced anteriorly/forwards, blocking the normal movement of your
      mandibular condylar heads. That’s likely why you’re physically locked. If
      you’re VERY lucky, it’s simply due to muscle spasm. But with an 8 month
      history of a closed lock, that’s highly not likely the only reason.

      2 great oral surgeons who really know this stuff: Dr. Mark Piper in Florida
      and Dr. Ed Zebovitz in Maryland.

      Normal dentist and “TMJ specialists” will negate the need for imaging and
      hand you a splint. If you were my daughter we would image w/ both MRI and
      CBCT to objectively diagnose what’s going on with you BEFORE we decide what
      kind of splint or at what bite position to make it in. Typically though,
      I’d not make you a splint, if your case was amenable to DTR. The only way
      to really know if it would be amenable to DTR therapy? 3D imaging/MRI/CBCT.
      Good luck!
