See Prosthodontist: Tmj is a joint / muscle/ligament ailment, not necessarily related to teeth. In fact, only sometimes are teeth directly involved. You may certainly have these symptoms with dentures. See a prosthodontist to evaluate your dentures and jaw position while wearing them. You may be "overclosed" (chin closer to nose than normal when teeth contacting) or too open (opposite). Both can cause spasm and pain. Read more

Easy fix!: The obvious question here is how old are your dentures? The life expectancy of a set of dentures is 5 years. During that time the teeth wear down and the bone changes. Now the muscles have to adapt and many times they can not. Have your current set of dentures checked by a good dentist with a knowledge of occlusion and muscular function. All dentures are not created equally. Some cause problems. Read more

It might: Since we don't know if you do have TMJ dysfunction, the guard may or may not help. Fit will not be great, and that sometimes can make things worse. You can give it a try and if uncomfortable, then just don't wear it. Read more
