Non-Surgical Treatment for
             Temporomandibular Disorders

We routinely provide TMJ treatment in a nonsurgical format. TMJ is a broad term that applies to temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Temporomandibular disorders are generally subdivided into three categories:

A person with TMD symptoms could have one or multiple conditions. Initial therapy involves a thorough TMJ/ TMD exam to locate the origin of pain.
Often times splint therapy, or bite guard appliance, is utilized to protect the teeth and joint as well as relax the muscles.
Pharmacologic intervention is occasionally necessary in the acute presentation of TMD.
