Causes of TMJ
What Are My TMJ Treatment Options?
Dealing with TMJ pain can be frustrating. You’re in pain. You’re uncomfortable. You just want relief.
Many times TMJ pain can be treated conservatively with non-surgical treatments. Giving the joint time to rest by going on a soft food diet, using heat and ice, or even using a bite brace or mouth guard can help relieve your pain. However, if these treatments aren’t working you may need to look at other options, like surgery.
Are Non-Surgical Treatment Options Right for Me?
For mild cases of TMJ disorders, there are several ways to deal with the pain without surgery. Your TMJ specialist may recommend taking over-the-counter medications or making small lifestyle changes. Orthodontic treatments may also be considered.
When is Surgery Necessary for TMJ Treatment?
No one really wants to go through surgery. But if more conservative treatments aren’t working, surgery may be the only way to solve your TMJ problems. TMJ surgery can help prevent the further breakdown of your joint, which prevents future problems.
If you’re tired of simply managing the symptoms of your TMJ disorder, our specialists can help you decide if surgery is the best option for you.
