Inflammation is caused by factors that put stress on your jaws. To diagnose TMJ we review your lifestyle, general health, and eating habits. We also examine your mouth and face to identify any medical causes.
Treatment for TMJ is a combination of treating the inflammation and addressing the causes of stress on your jaw. Common treatments include medication, stretching and physical therapy, and dental correction such as orthodontic treatment for misaligned teeth or bite appliances.
If you are suffering from chronic jaw pain, call us to make an appointment.
