Q&A: What is a Myofacial doctor and can they help me with TMD issues?
A myofacial specialist is someone who has had extra training in the treatment of TMJ/TMD problems. I would suggest you find out about his/her training before you start training. Too many times there are general dentists who take a few weekend courses over the years and call themselves expert. Your doctor should have had a residency at an accredited hospital. That residency should have been at least two years in length. There are very few true myofacial specialists, although there are many dentists who consider themselves as such.
