WHAT IS TMJ AND HOW IS IT TREATED?
HOW WE ARE PREPARED TO HELP
We understand that having problems with your TMJ is certainly unpleasant and can make day-to-day living a challenge. If we determine that you have TMJ disorder, we can start you on treatment right away help you get relief from the symptoms of it. Common treatment options include lifestyle changes, including changing your diet or to stop chewing gum. Certain medications can also help with it, such as tricyclic antidepressants or muscle relaxants. An occlusive device worn at night can help, especially if you grind your jaw at night (a condition known as bruxism). Pain medication can also help with the symptoms. In extreme cases of TMJ disorder, surgery may be necessary.
