James here....

being a classical singer I have had some problems with TMJ. If at all possible avoid letting someone grind your teeth to balance your bite. (ballanced occlusion) A mouth guard worn at nite can use the kind of guard a football player uses though some feel only a costly appliance will do. The best muscle relaxant I found to use is Soma (there is a cheap generic) Just make sure your Pdoc knows you are using it as it effects the CNS. I use non seroidals as first line and Soma as needed. It is best to try everything and get a 2 nd opinion b4 you allow someone to grind away some this works but as you get older the lost tooth materal can leave you with considerable problems.

I have always ground my teeth...on and off the psyco meds.
