I've had TMJ issues for most my life. Actually, July 4th will be the 20th year of having it. I was 13, having lunch, taking the first bite of a hotdog, and my jaw popped and locked open. Somehow I managed to unhinge it, but the pain was breathtaking.
So, I've had enough, and getting braces again to try to fix it. Despite the eight years of braces when I was a kid, about nine more months should help with some of the damage. We will follow up with a night splint specifically made for TMJ.
I will post pics when I get them on in a few weeks. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the adventures of spacers.
