A diagnosis of TMJ/TMD means you have a dysfunction in the jaw joint and jaw muscle areas. Your neuromuscular dentist will study the relationship between your teeth, jaw muscles, and your jaw movements, to understand the dysfunction and formulate a strategy for improvement. TMJ treatment may involve repositioning the jaw into its most comfortable posture and supporting it with an oral appliance. Once comfort is attained, more permanent support is attained through Orthodontics or restorative procedures.
Each individual has unique jaw joint dysfunction, and a combination of therapies may be recommended for permanent correction. The goal of TMJ treatment is to alleviate pain, soreness and other symptoms and to improve the function of the jaw joint.
TMJ treatment may include:
- TENS electrical stimulation
- EMG measurements of Facial Muscles
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Oral appliances
- Physical therapy
- Lifestyle recommendations
