      I had a dentists appointment this past Wednesday, and I asked my hygienist to check out my jaw. When moved sideways even slightly, it grinds and grates painfully on the left side (which is where my severe ear/jaw pain, burning, fullness and numbness are) and my severe bruxism has ground many of my molars flat.

      Does anyone know what kind of doctor I should see about this?

      Hi cant see how a hygenist can diagnose TMJD as a fact,think they are overstepping their remit,

      Suggest googling dentist specialising in TMJD in your area, Good Luck

      See a Neuromuscular dentist. They specialize in TMJ. They may start you off with a night time dental appliance and some jaw therapy. maybe put you on a softer diet, and give you some stretches to do at home. they have a good cure rate.
