What is TMJ Therapy?
TMJ is an acronym for the Temporomandibular Joint. This joint is the intersection of your jaw bone with your skull and is the epicenter of a huge cluster of nerves. Any issues in the TMJ can cause major pain. Problems in the TMJ are often referred to as TMD (temporomandibular disorder). The two acronyms are used interchangeably. We can help diagnose and treat TMD/TMJ right here in our office.
The TMJ Treatment
You will first need to come in and meet with our doctors for an exam. During this exam, it will be determined what your exact issue is and treatment options will be discussed. You will be prepped accordingly, depending on your treatment option. Depending on the extent of the treatment, your healing time will vary.
