Q.

Neuromuscular dentist

Hi There

I am on Lexamil and have had bruxism in the form of clenching for a while now (day and night) My jaw makes a popping sound and one side goes into a spasm., my neck hurts i am tired eand my sinus is giving me hell, I had x rays and the joints seem ok but they think it might be the disc.

Question is do i see a dentist or a maxillo facial surgeon and also if its dentist i believe a dentit who does nueromuscular dentistry is best where would i find one?

Thank you
