TMJ Treatment and Therapy

The complexities can range from simple tooth wear from grinding and clenching the teeth. It can also be muscular pain and trigger points. Headaches, neckaches, limited opening, and severe pain can characterize TMJ as well. Some patients have tongue posture issues or sleep-disordered breathing that can be correlated. Typically a consultation is necessary to diagnose the problem and x-rays are sometimes needed to aid in the diagnosis and treatment sequence. Schedule an appointment with a dentist near you for a diagnosis and treatment.
