TMJ/TMD Treatment

To control and treat the cause of TMD effectively, your dentist uses a multifaceted treatment approach. After we uncover the underlying causes of your unique situation, we will tailor an approach that addresses what TMJ disorder triggers that affect you.

An imbalanced bite is one of the most common factors that contribute to TMD. When the oral cavity does not align properly, it takes a toll on the TMJ so it is necessary to use minor irregular movements to chew or speak. In many cases, correcting misalignment is the initial step toward treating TMJ disorder.

TMJ/TMD at Dental Now 14

As Dental Now 14 your dentist may incorporate one or more of the following treatments, such as:

  • Muscle Relaxants and Anti-Inflammatory Medications: It isn’t always possible to control overuse and muscle tension, in those cases TMJ therapy can help relax muscles and reduce joint pain and headaches.
  • Physical Therapy (PT): Like with any overuse or physical injury, exercise, stretches, massage and other therapeutic methods are the most effective approaches. PT can help restore strength in weak areas and retrain joints.
  • Bite Orthotic Devices: Modern advances have brought us CT scans and digital impressions that make it possible for custom-fitted bite orthotics to be made. These customized dental appliances help guide the jaw into proper position.
