TMJ Treatment Options

TMJ-treatment-pittsburgh-dentistryTemporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD) is a disorder that is often extremely painful and has many severe symptoms. Unfortunately, because symptoms often resemble other conditions, TMJ is often overlooked and many patients endure the ongoing pain and suffering. Alternatively, when these symptoms are properly diagnosed, they can be alleviated.

If you have any of the following symptoms, you may need to seek TMJ treatment:

  • Migraines/intense headaches
  • Earaches
  • Jaw popping or clicking when opening or closing mouth
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Constant pain and discomfort in jaw

With the proper treatment, you can say goodbye to all of these symptoms. The first step is to set up a consultation with an experienced neuromuscular dentist to determine which TMJ treatment option is right for you. TMJ treatment options may include:

  • TENS (transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation) therapy to help relax the muscles in the jaw and face
  • Physical or Massage therapy to help to relax the muscles and build muscle strength
  • Chiropractic treatment to align the jaw and relax the muscles
  • A variety of orthodontic treatments to help with a number of misalignment or space issues that may be causing your TMJ pain
  • Resting the jaw and avoiding strenuous activities which can help reduce TMJ pain
