TMJ Caused by Braces
i went for 2nd orthodontic treatment at age 20 to correct my malaligned anterior teeth caused due to previous braces.now there is about 5 mm gap between my anterior teeth( over bite) and i have started having tmj pains. should i continue with the treatment until my teeth is aligned as in won't it harm my joint further or should i remove the braces.is it true that pushing back the teeth can cause tmj. should i go 4 splint therapy now. can a splint be applied over orthodontic braces?
