Question
I have a swollen gum above old root canalafter wearing mouth guard it has happened twice
my bite is off 6 degrees
Cant afford to have mouth guard adjusted

Answer
Christine,
I am not a dentist but I do have TMJ so I try to help people with that.  I'm sorry to hear you can't afford to have your guard adjusted but I don't see what else you can do. Maybe you can go to a local dental school that has a clinic that offers lower fees.  Good Luck.

I AM NOT A DENTIST!!!!!!!! PLEASE DON'T ASK ME ANY QUESTIONS THAT SHOULD BE ANSWERED BY A DENTAL PROFESSIONAL..but I have had TMJ so I can answer questions on how I finally got my TMJ under control. I have several things I have done to treat myself, plus suggestions on what professionals to seek out, exercises, the best nightguard devices, etc..

Experience

I've had TMJ for over six years.
