  1. OK, so Dr. Sharma my daughter has been having TMJ since she was in high school and she’s currently 24 going on 25. She has really bad job pain, clicking & clenching and all else that accompanies TMJ. She has seen a dentist and was referred to see a specialist and that specialist unfortunately was unable to help her. She is now seeking the help of the orthodontist. And he has given her a plan, upwards of $5000 that in summary will require the use of a splint and a non-definitive further treatment plan and phase 2? In her paid for consult of $85 it included a scan whereby he determined and displayed for her her bone loss of 30%. I’d like to finally add that he tried to entice her with $500 off if she started treatment tomorrow and her consult was today. I would appreciate your most HEPA grounded recommendation if there is one to be had. I thank you for your medical practice time, and your employees efforts to Get you this information to that effect. Sincerely, and respectfully, Teemarie

    Dear Dr. Sharma,
    I have an upper wise tooth back inside, pressing the bone. I am 46 and it had never bothered me before. I suffer when trying to open the mouth and when I chew. I do not want to go through surgery. Can I use homeopathy? Which is more appropriate?
    Thank you for your kind help.

    Well profound Knowledge has helped me…

  4. Hi Dr. Sharma,
    I was diagnosed with TMJ as a teenager. My Mother has it – and I had a jaw injury in High School and it came on after that. The TMJ symptoms have lessoned over the years, as I have had several different types of body work to help the symptoms… the but I have recently noticed more clenching again at night, and have needed to start wearing a night guard again (which I had made at the dentist to help my teeth from caving in). Also, for several years I notice that I have experienced a great deal of facial tension. My jaw and mouth feel like they are constantly moving around and it becomes slightly painful, very tense in my mouth and jaw, but more so very aggravating. I don’t know if anyone else notices it, but it is beginning to worry me as it is driving me a bit crazy. I am concerned that others may see me doing this, but I cannot tell. None of this is accompanied by flushness/hot in the face, and it seems to be happening on both sides of my face. I also have tension in the forehead…Thoughts?

  5. Sujaya rao says:

    My problem was, I could not open my mouth wide. No pain and no other discomfort. When chewing food I could hear the sound in my ear, which even today exists to a lesser extent. I was caring for an old person 24/7 and could not attend to my own problem except Arnica ( thinking it could an injury, I had not heard the word TMJ then) then, problem vanished, I can open my mouth normally, only some sound in the ear while chewing (less now) .
    Now it seems that allignment of my jaws is slightly affected and my chewing is norfine enough.
    Is there any thing I should do?
