TMJ Treatment in Tampa, FL
There are various treatments available today to treat temporomandibular joint disorder, or more commonly known as “TMJ”. TMJ is pain that stems from an affected area in the temporomandibular joint in the jaw. This is usually due to an irritated nerve or displaced disk in the joint.
Treatments options are usually the following:
- Dental splints
- Physical therapy
- Pain Medication
Any of the above options could make sense for you and your situation depending on different variables, however, many of the most common treatments fail to provide a permanent treatment for many people. The reason for this is because these treatments do not restore the displaced disk that is the source of the pain.
Our treatment for TMJ includes:
- Evaluation and diagnosis
- Creation of custom nightguard
- Treatment for bruxing (grinding and clenching)
- Treatment for worn teeth
