Diagnosis & Treatment

We will take digital images and perform a thorough examination of your oral and facial structures to determine the severity of your jaw pain. If swelling and intense discomfort make it difficult for you to open and close your mouth, or if your bite is misaligned and causing TMJ, we will develop a treatment plan that focuses on realigning your bite and alleviating the pressure that is being placed on your jaw joints.

Occlusal Splints

The most popular method of treatment for TMJ is occlusal splints. This type of oral appliance is customized to fit your mouth, preventing teeth from touching (that often leads to bruxism) as well as alleviating the pressure and tension placed on your jaw joints. By wearing an occlusal splint, the jaw will be repositioned over time, allowing for greater comfort and functionality.
