Contact DDS: If the dentist reviewed your radiographs and did a clinical examination, was TMJ addressed? If TMJ symptoms are relevant the dentist may treat you by making a nightguard that would separate your teeth, to lessen grinding if evident. Otherwise, you may be referred to your MD for an evaluation.
