I have had an awful time lately with severe jaw/ear pain. I called my dentist this morning and he was able to work me in today. He checked my joint for TMJ, checked inside for trauma, and had me do several bit pads. He said one of my molars had turned and was out of alignment. So, he buffed the rough spots and said that should do the trick. If not, he is sending me to a TMJ specialist in Anderson. Sure enough, it feels so much better tonight. I am hoping the soreness diasppears over the next day or so.
