TMJ and TMD: Let us give you the ABC’s on TMJ (Temporomandibular joints) and TMD (Temporomandibular Disorder). First off, you are not alone. Millions of people suffer from this type of jaw and headache pain. That’s the bad news. The good news is that a custom occlusal splint (a bite guard specifically designed for you) worn just at night can often align the TMJ and reduce the pressure on the joint and allow it to heal. Another option is Botox administered directly into the muscles used to close the jaw, which can provide months of relief. Finally, we can show you a variety of exercises that you can do on your own to reduce TMD. In summation, by working together you can turn TMJ and TMD from WTF to LOLs with our treatment plan.
