Hi Rico

Thank you for your advice. In France, GNM dentists don't exist (neither oral surgeons specializing in TMJD... I hate my country more and more...)

Have you find some relief with your therapy ?

Such an investment !

oral surgery is not specialised in  TMJD
perhaps in next 50 - 100y

what we can do is to put jaw in proper position by special splint
but it's not easy

I feel my upper jaw has collapsed, especially at the back and my lower jaw is way too low at the back.
How can a splint can correct this ?

I have two solutions to replace my mandibule in the right height : grinding my teeth or posterior impaction (clockwise rotation maybe ?)

I would be interested to know this too. I have TMJ disorder / condylar resporption and think it has something to do with my steep occlusal plane and canted maxilla.

I found a nice slide share about condylar resorption and TMJ disease..... but it's in french.
It is written by Dr Chamberland a Quebecker orthodontist. He mentions Arnett, Gunson and Wolford's works.
I'll try to find an english version.
