Diagnosis & Treatment

Your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complex joints in the body, so there could be any number of reasons why it has started causing your pain. To diagnose your TMJ disorder, we will feel your jaw when you open and close your mouth, observe its range of motion, and take whatever X-rays are deemed necessary. We can come up with a treatment plan once we have the full picture of your situation.

Occlusal Splints

An occlusal splint is a custom-made oral appliance that’s designed to address TMD in several ways. First of all, it adjusts the position of the upper jaw so that it doesn’t put as much stress on the joint, giving it a chance to rest and heal. Second, because it keeps the upper and lower rows of teeth separated, it helps prevent bruxism (the unconscious grinding of the teeth that is often responsible for TMD symptoms).
