What is TMJ Treatment?

TMJ treatment involves addressing issues related to the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to the skull. TMJ disorders can cause a range of symptoms, including jaw pain, difficulty in moving the jaw and audible clicking or popping sounds. Our treatment focuses on relieving pain, restoring function and preventing further complications.

Our Approach to TMJ Treatment

At Dentists at Woodway, TMJ treatment starts with a thorough evaluation of your symptoms, dental health and jaw functionality. Based on this assessment, we develop a customized treatment plan which may include:

  • Jaw Exercises: To strengthen jaw muscles and improve flexibility.
  • Oral Appliances: Such as night guards or splints to alleviate pressure on the joint.
  • Pain Management: Recommendations for managing discomfort, which may include medications, physical therapy or relaxation techniques.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Guidance on habits and practices to avoid exacerbating TMJ symptoms.

Our treatment plans are designed to target the specific needs of each patient, focusing on the most effective strategies to provide relief and promote healing.
