Hello doctor,
I've been suffering from TMJ for a long time and I had left it untreated for long. Now the situation has gotten worse where it has become difficult for me to smile,open my jaw fully and also I feel extreme discomfort facially but I have consulted a dentist and he has blamed jaw clenching and improper alignment and for treatment he has asked me to use a night guard. This problem of TMJ has made me unhappy these past few days and I just wanted to know that will it get better now that I am getting treatment and also will I regain my happiness as I believe I'm a jolly person in general
# hey
