TMJ Treatment


It is reported that an estimated 10-million Americans suffer from disorders in the temporomandibular joint and muscles.

And because of its complexity, there is a sizable range of causes for dysfunction and disorders. Some of the TMJ symptoms related to this disorder include:

TMJ Treatment Options To Relieve Pain


In some instances symptoms may go away without treatment. However, if they persist we can recommend a variety of TMJ treatment options including:

  • Oral splints or bite guards
  • Physical therapy, exercises, ultrasound or moist heat and ice
  • Pharmaceuticals such as muscle relaxants, pain relievers or sedatives

Corrective dental treatment to improve your bite TMJ disfunction can be complicated and can require a referral to a specialist to treat it. It is also important to understand that the use of surgical intercession is used only in rare cases.
