In brief: Now

TMJ problems can become problematic as time passes.
For best results, see a TMJ-orofacial specialist for advice. If treated early, can be controlled. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
