I have suffered wth TMD for a very long time. I am a horrible clencher. I do wear a nite guard.
About 10 years ago I had a root canal on the left lower molar (last one). About 4 years ago it had to be retreated.
Over the last 2 months I have had horrible pain on that side of my mouth. I have been to my dentist 2 times and my endodentist once. Both of which say there is absolutely nothing concerning on the X-ray.
My endodentist is adamant it is my bite. He stated that I am only biting on two teeth on my left side. One of which is my last molar. Is it true it would cause this pain? Especially after all this time?
I'm wearing my night guard at night a and it is still hurting.
