If all four steps check out you can be sure that your pain IS due to
TMJ dysfunction syndrome and we can help you.
The illustrations below shows what happens when you have a correct bite verses when your bite is uneven. In step 4 shows how Dr. Simon’s FDA Approved Bite Discluder tests if the cause of your pain is an uneven bite. He will further explain this during your consult.
Correct bites; jaws are centered and teeth fit.
Jaws are centered but teeth don’t fit
Jaws have to shift for teeth to fit causing muscle spasm.
Discluder guides teeth to let jaws center, muscles relax and pain stops.
If possible, take no pain medicine for at least 12-24 hours prior to your visit. Masking the pain with drugs makes it harder to determine the problem.
If there’s a friend or family member that you want to share the results of your consultation with it’s best to bring them with you so you both can ask the doctor all of your questions.
