That's great a splint helped you! I know of a dentist who will develop a splint based on where the jaw wants to rest, but it is very expensive so just waiting on the country to be more stable.I had tmj for years before realizing what was wrong. No popping or clicking, just bruxism clenching constant tightness and pain. It continued to get worse and worse until I went to a good tmj dentist and did splint therapy. Now I’m probably 90% back to normal. I was basically a high functioning invalid before starting treatment.
If your pain continues to get worse I recommend going to a dentist with a long history of successfully treating tmj
