Treatment for TMD

Some patients are affected by Temporomandibular Disorders (often called “TMJ”/“TMJ Treatment” as a layterm by some) and are looking for ways to reduce their symptoms.

Problem

Tempormandibular joint pain, facial muscle pain, "slipped disc", or jaw locking open or closed

Solution

Your prosthodontist can peform a comprehensive TMD (temporomandibular dysfunction) exam to gather information as well as a detailed patient interview to determine the symptoms. Often times, these problems will need to be isolated and treated with one of various types of oral splints and/or oral medications to help reduce symptoms. Other treatment modalities may also be included in the treatment plan.
