Exchange painkillers for TMJ treatment
The good news? TMD is treatable
The good news is that TMD is a treatable condition. There are several treatment options available, depending on the severity of your problem.
- Orthotics can realign your jaw and retrain your jaw muscles
- Restorative dentistry – replacing missing teeth or repairing damaged ones – can help you re-balance your bite
- Orthodontic treatment (Braces)
Dr. Amy Yoo uses the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to treat TMD. Neuromuscular dentistry looks at the whole picture. She examines more than teeth, she evaluates your entire jaw structure – bones, teeth, muscles, and nerves. Exploring the cause of your bite issues, finding your optimum jaw position and creating a treatment plan can help bring the balance back.
