In brief: Diagnose the problem

In order to fix your TMJ dysfunction, one has to know what kind of problem you are having and what caused it or is causing it.
TMJ dysfunction can be due to a number of different etiologies, so therapy can vary. You can start with your dentist who may be able to diagnose and possibly treat you, or be referred to someone who has more experience in treating TMJ disorders.
