Is it true I cannot start orthodontics if I have TMJ? What are my options?
When teeth are not straight, it is a sign of instability. A reason not to start would definitely be TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems. Those problems include, but are not limited to, clicking in the jaw, muscle pain, joint pain, pain to chew, ear pain, migraines, limited opening or locking jaw closed or open.Just like you would not walk on a broken foot,
