Crafting Your Individualized Treatment Strategy
Our treatment options for TMJ disorders are varied and are selected based on the most effective approach for your situation:
Home Care Instructions
We often start with guidance on how to manage your symptoms at home. This might include dietary adjustments, relaxation techniques, and proper jaw exercises.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
TENS therapy can relieve some patients by relaxing the jaw muscles and reducing pain.
Custom Bite Splints
We may recommend a custom-fitted bite splint, which helps to alleviate pressure on the jaw joint and can reduce symptoms.
Physical Therapy Referrals
In cases where it’s beneficial, we collaborate with physical therapists with expertise in treating TMJ disorders.
For more complex cases, we offer advanced treatments, including bite reconstruction or surgery, though these are considered only when necessary and after thorough evaluation.
Our commitment is to provide you with a treatment plan that not only alleviates your symptoms but also addresses the underlying causes of your TMJ disorder, ensuring long-term relief and improved oral health.
