Does anyone know of an effective treatment for TMD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction)?
For a few months now I've been having issues with my jaw and teeth. I have a slight pain in my upper left jaw when I open my mouth wide, and the jaw makes a slight popping noise occasionally.
The worst part though, is that my teeth have become misaligned for some reason, and my "bite" is not symmetric anymore. When I bite down, the teeth on the right side of the mouth meet, but a space remains between the upper and lower teeth on the left side of the mouth.
My 2 upper front teeth have also "shifted" their position, so they are protruding more outwards, I almost look like a rabbit.
Talking to my dentist and looking online, the recommended 'solution' to this is surgery or dental work.
However I've noticed that when I eat certain irritating foods, and my bowels are under 'stress', the misplacement of the teeth becomes worse (they physically move!). So just with this in mind, I'm thinking that there may be some inflammatory cause that keeping the teeth misaligned. Interestingly, when I first noticed the shifting of my teeth several months ago, it was also during a period of diarrhea (and general stress)
With this in mind, I'm convinced there has to be a 'natural' treatment for this disorder. Also interesting is that RP talks about how DHEA made some of his impacted teeth shift into normal position.
I've tried typical RP things like T3, aspirin, vitamins, progesterone without much help.
Anyone who has dealt with this, or knows of possible solutions to this "disorder"?
