Relieve Jaw & Other Oral Pain
Do you get frequent headaches, earaches, tender jaw muscles, or a dull, aching facial pain? Does your jaw lock or move to one side when you open your mouth? Does it click or pop and does that cause pain? These aches and pains may be related to your jaw joint, the temporomandibular joint or “TMJ”, and the muscles that work to move the joint. These painful disorders are often called “TMJ” for temporomandibular disorders.

How to Treat TMJ Disorder?

TMJ disorders are often managed, rather than cured.
Treatment may involve a series of steps. This allows you to try simple and reversible treatments before moving on to more involved treatment.
