Dr. Henry Gremillion wraps up our TMD series by looking at the different typs of pain often associated with TMD. He also shares his most important case and what he learned about misdiagnoses of TMD. Often patients do not know where the pain they are experiencing is coming from and dentists may treat a referral site instead of the actual trigger point.
