Any information will help. I did find toothpaste and mouth rinse that do wonders for the dryness. Of course, nothing lasts forever, but every little bit helps.
Thank you for you insights, as always- they are precious little diamonds of hope!!!!

I live in Florida, but on the West Coast so unfortunately I don't have anyone I can recommend. I know some folks in Orlando I can ask if that's not too far of a drive for you. Shoot me a PM if you'd like for me to inquire.

My dentist has informed me that the orthodontist has truly wrecked my bite and he doesn't know what to do. But by all means, please PM me and give me the name of the doctor in Orlando!! It's just a short drive for my husband and if he can help -the travel time doesn't matter.
My problem with my jaw other than having it repaired incorrectly after I broke it in a car accident is that the miniscus sits anterior to the condile on both sides, thus I have no cushioning or very little. I'm already on a couple of pain killers and don't know how Neurotin would help, but I will sure as my pain management doctor.
Maybe, they can do a mouth piece for me, It's just really painful for them to do it. Thanks again for the help and the doctor's name.
