Dr Gorman, I really found this video informative and I think your patient
manner and knowledge base are excellent. I’m a first year Dental Student
and I actually suffer from TMJ pain as well as referred neck and ear pain
and headaches. Your video really enlightened me!

    Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS January 18, 2016 22:36:15

    +Martin Laird Where are you in school? What treatment are you planning?
    What do the professors suggest?

    Martin Laird January 18, 2016 22:44:55

    Hey Dr, I’m a Scottish student studying in Glasgow Dental Hospital and
    School! They recommended I use a splint but I did sustain a neck injury in
    my C1 region which has affected my hearing, TMJ and I believe my occlusion
    all of which contribute to dizziness and headaches! It sounds like alot of
    stuff but I think I can pin it down to the one neck injury.

    Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS January 19, 2016 16:47:52

    +Martin Laird With a C1 issue you should think about seeing a chiropractor,
    specifically an atlas-orthogonist. If you google Dr. Chris Chapman, you can
    review his chiro/C1 relationship to mandibular position in the fossae. With
    the appliance I use, its the continual adjustments as the jaw moves that
    eventually stabilizes the condyle and the bite. Remember as the mandible
    moves, all the teeth move with it. In regards to your accident…what I do
    is the same…move the mandible to its “stable condylar position” and in
    over 90% of cases you will get an excellent result.

    Martin Laird January 19, 2016 19:05:57

    +Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS Thanks very much for your advice sir! I hate to
    be cheesy but do you have any advice for the next 5 years of dental school
    I’ll be going through?

Happy thoughts February 11, 2016 23:28:37

Had this…didn’t work not to say it won’t work for others. I wore it at
night and I just grinded through the piece. Any one heard of DTR procedure?
I’ve heard positive things about it.

Hello Dr Martin. I’m a dentist and I’m a general practitioner. My patient
has difficulty in opening wide her mouth because she has a tendency to
lock. I need to do several restorative fillings but due to her TMJ problem,
I find it difficult to do. What suggestion do you recommend..thank you for
your advice

Put putting a plastic piece ien her mouth doesn’t fundamentally address the
problem. If the problem is her bite, won’t she need braces to fix hr bite?
Or some kind of repair surgery to adjust the teeth so that the bite is
fixed? She said she first had problems after having cavities filled, which
means the dentist did something wrong, in which case shouldn’t it be
corrected rather than her having to hold a piece of plastic between her
teeth all the time?

Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS March 27, 2016 20:41:45

The plastic appliance in this video is an emergency appliance to separate
the teeth so that the jaw muscles relax and the condyle seats or starts to
seat in the anatomic socket. We use 3 different upper appliances depending
on history, severity , exam results and longevity. The piece of plastic is
adjusted until pain is resolved and the jaw is no longer moving; the jaw is
in a stable condylar position. This can take a few days or many months.
Once phase 1 is complete we then develop a treatment plan to have the teeth
do exactly what the appliance has been doing. This can involve bite
adjustments, ortho, bonding, veneers , crowns and even jaw surgery. Yes,
sometimes , the cause is faulty dentistry. The issue is, if I just start
adjusting somebody else’s work it becomes my work and if the adjustment
doesn’t work I’m responsible. So by using and properly adjusting appliances
I know what l am doing, and know when I adjust somebody else’s dentistry my
adjustments will work. Martin Gorman DDS. 818-995-1891

Hello. I have constantly deviated jaw -when I keep mouth closed or opened
due hypercorrection of zygomatic bone reposition surgery, The bone is set
2mm outward too much and 1mm too much forward from it’s original position.
Before surgery I did not have deviated jaw and no symptoms of related
TMJD. I’ve been suffering deviated jaw immediately since surgery, but TMJD
appeared 6 weeks later. In another 2 weeks I got hearing issues. I’m really
depressed. Surgeons think it has no relation to my problem… but i think
there is… The surgeon moved the bone wrongly – too agressive change for
my masseter muscle, which now pulls the jaw. IT was moved 5-6mm outward +
2mm forward. So it’s about 7-8mm of change for anterior part of masseter
muscle upper line attachment while the lower one on the jaw stayed in the
same positon. I belive my muscle is too twisted and too stretched. It can’t
adjust . Surgeon crossed the critical points beyond my soft tissues can’t
adjust. I know you must see me to have better ideal what’s going on, but
do you think I may have little right ? I even wonder about all muscle
relationship, while the masseter muscle was put too much away It’s only 2-3
mm .. but for face it may be a lot….I belive I have to put that bone a
bit back, but no surgeon wants to help me… and irreverible changes become
soon. It’ 5 months after surgery – no improvement. I was using splint…. I
had some physiotherpa.. no improvement nothing.. the jaw is still deviated
about 1mm to the operated side. What it can be ? Do you have idea. I’m
looking for a help..any information may be helpful for me

Hello Doctor Gorman, I am a dentist myself. I have a Patient with
diminished VDO. I explained she needed a full mouth reconstruction to
augment VDO, but she can’t afford it at the time. She was having pain in
jaw and clicking, I gave her an occlusal appliance with anterior guidance
and did proper adjustments for the splint to have contacts everywhere in
centric. She presents 2 weeks later and states she doesn’t have any more
pain and her clicking went away, but now when she doesn’t have the splint,
she deviates to the right upon closing and occludes only on that side and
no contacts towards left. Why can this be happening? any suggestions?,
we’re on Florida. Thanks.

Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS May 1, 2016 13:27:52

Maria Magurno, you seem to be on the right track. I’m sure when you
delivered the appliance it was in balance. But once patient starts to use
24/7 you get healing in joint, muscle relaxation. Therefore the mandible
moves along with all the teeth. That’s why the appliance must be
continually adjusted until the jaw becomes stable. I recommend the
appliance be built at the patients correct VDO and adjusted accordingly.
Either add or remove acrylic to maintain the VDO you want. There are less
invasive restorative procedures available for increasing VDO but this is
not a classroom. Best of luck Martin Gorman DDS 818-995-1891

    Im having jaw pain When anxiety attack me.

Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS May 1, 2016 13:39:11

X Don. Sorry you having issues. First read comments to Maria about effect
of appliance. The same applies to you. You needed appliance therapy prior
to surgery so your jaw would be stable in the socket. When stable, now you
know where to move teeth bones and muscles. Issue you have is jaw was not
stable and after surgery it moved creating your problem, including TMd. I
suggesting confirming with exam and then properly adjusted upper appliance.
Usually takes about one week to properly asjust seeing you 2-4 times daily.
Best of luck Martin Gorman DDS. 818-995-1891

I wonder how that girl’s doing?

Nancy Jones May 9, 2016 23:06:50

Doc you are great!!! I just wish I lived in L.A.!!!

Jose Lopez May 16, 2016 23:44:52

I started get intense pain on my left side of my jaw /ears…I think from
eating a lot hard candy. Would that cause tmj?

Joseph Foster May 28, 2016 3:00:59

Dr Gorman, recently my front 4 teeth on upper and lower feel a little
loose. I had Gingivitis but after having a deep cleaning and flossing
regularly my gums don’t bleed anymore. I don’t have gum recession and I’m
trying to figure out why my teeth feel a little loose. Could be from
grinding but I don’t have headaches and don’t have symptoms of grinding. My
dentist told me it’s normal for a little teeth movement which is crazyness
in my book….they’ve never felt loose before. I’m 37, is this normal? My
teeth have been aching for a couple weeks. 

Bryan Yuen June 17, 2016 3:35:16

Hey doc, would splint therapy help recapture my tmj disc for anterior disc
displacement without reduction

Wish I had saw this sooner. l woke up one morning to something pulling in
my inner check area on right side. Had no idea what it was, really weird.
This was happening off and on for two days. After that I noticed on right
side of my face looks swollen, not by much but I can see the difference
when looking in the mirror. So far I have off and on tingling sensation on
right side of my face, headaches, right side neck pain, right side ear pain
and sometimes weird sensation on right side of throat. It has persisted and
I now have sensation in my right arm as if I laid on it wrong or its sleep,
sometimes travels down my right leg. Also, right eye twitches from time to
time.

I have a retainer but try not to sleep with it in my mouth because of
grinding my teeth at night.

hi dr gorman i have question i use a mago aplliance for bout 4 yrs now from
a dentist in michigan he only did study models on a articulator and no
exrays ..i worry that it changed my bite drastically as i get jaw joint
flare ups usualy around menstrual cycleor dental work ect..while i do think
i been told previously there is some arthitis in the joint just worried i
guess ..and lately been having chewing diffuculties ..its been about 6
mnths since last adjustmnt.

    Dr. Martin N. Gorman, DDS July 1, 2016 23:53:50

    Liza, it’s normal for your jaw to move and bite to change with MAGO use.
    Mago is just the first phase of treatment…pain relief and jaw joint
    stabilization.When the jaw moves to its natural position, all the teeth
    move, so your bite changes. Once phase 1 is complete you move to phase 2,
    which is having your teeth changed, adjusted, corrected to do the same as
    the Mago. Then the Mago becomes a night guard. If you would like to know
    about arthritis have a 3-D x-ray or an MRI. Everyone is different, but when
    the jaw moves in the socket it remodels/reshapes then the jaw and teeth
    continue to move, so your bites changes again. Therefore, Mago’s and the
    final treatment require fine tuning on occasion. Best of luck with your
    health, Martin Gorman,DDS 818-995-1891
