A brief story on me, my lower jaw would forcefully shift when I yawned with my mouth open as wide as I could and my temporomandibol joint would crack every now and then
On 2/22/13 I went to see a neuromuscular dentist since this was the closes type of dentist in Hawaii to Dr. Amir. I was corresponding with the dentist before via email where I showed him this http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/hea ... 64060.html
The dentist told me that he uses a Myotronics unit to measure bite and jaw symmetry. When I went to see him, he first told me that tmj was in my future if I didnt correct my bite and that the cartilage in the joint was all worn out with it being very close to bone on bone. So his assistant puts a TENS unit on the joint I guess to relax the muscles then she puts the Myotronics piece on and he measures my bite with the unit. I was only instructed to open my mouth about 1", so im thinking shes not going to see anything since I wanted her to see my mouth shift.
The results were even at just 1" my jaw was already starting to misalign. On a graph ideally my bite should go like this \ top to bottom, left to right but my jaw was / bottom to top, left to right. He said I needed braces to correct my teeth since they were slanted in ward
To save on airfare he found an orthodontist on my island so I wouldnt have to fly so much and he will email all the specs to the orthodontist to make the brace or invisilign brace. Right now im just waiting to see the orthodontist. So now im wonder how close will this be to Dr Amir? i'll update this with my progress
