Understanding Your TMJ

TMD Treatment

The TMJ is crucial for daily activities like speaking, smiling, and eating. However, when it malfunctions, these simple actions can become painful. Our team is skilled in diagnosing and treating TMJ issues, ensuring your jaw’s health and functionality.

Identifying Causes of TMD

TMD can stem from various factors, including:

  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • A traumatic injury
  • Bruxism (clenching and grinding)
  • Sleep apnea
  • Anatomical irregularities
  • Bone disease


Recognizing the cause is the first step toward effective treatment. Our comprehensive evaluation will pinpoint the underlying issue, guiding our approach to your care.

Symptoms of TMJ Disorder

Symptoms like difficulty opening your mouth, chewing pain, or unusual jaw sounds could indicate TMD. We use palpation and imaging to assess your condition accurately, providing a clear path to relief.

Effective, Non-Surgical TMD Therapies

Our TMD treatments range from bite splints and orthodontic therapy to physical therapy and FDA-approved injectables like Botox. Each solution is tailored to address the specific cause of your TMJ disorder, offering targeted relief without the need for surgery.

  • Bite Splints: Ideal for mitigating bruxism-related TMJ strain, promoting muscle relaxation.
  • Orthodontic Therapy: Corrects misalignment issues, reducing abnormal chewing motions and joint strain.
  • Physical Therapy and Massage: Addresses incorrect joint movement patterns through exercise and massage.
  • Injectables: Alleviates tension around the TMJ and facial muscles for months at a time.
  • Warm, Moist Heat: Soothes sore joints and muscles effectively.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Medication: Offers temporary pain relief, with a focus on finding long-term solutions.
  • Neuromuscular Dentistry: Aims to establish a balance between your teeth’s biting relationships and muscle relaxation.
  • Replacing Missing Teeth: Evens out chewing forces, easing TMJ tension as part of a holistic treatment plan.
