TMJ Treatment

TMJ and occlusion/bite related problems range from clicking and popping to headaches and neck-aches and more. There are several treatment options for TMJ related discomfort or dysfunction and can vary tremendously depending on your diagnosis. TMJ related pain can be caused by trauma,muscle spasm, dislocation, arthritis, tooth and jaw alignment, stress, grinding your teeth and several other factors. Some TMJ related discomfort may be acute and short-term, requiring simply soft foods and stretching while sometimes it is more chronic and may necessitate more involved treatment.
