Find Out How Our TMD Treatment Can Help
So chronic jaw pain can be an extremely difficult thing to treat. There’s a wide variety of symptoms, and for some patients, it’s a very significant life altering process, you know, not for the good. Typically we make night guards, which is a fairly simple thing to do. That usually gives them some relief. Sometimes we have to alter their bite because their bite and their jaw joint aren’t in sync, and that can cause some of the discomfort. Sometimes we use Botox if we feel like there’s a strong muscular element to the issue. And honestly, this is a situation for a lot of patients. You can make it better. Never promise patients we’re going to cure them of this, because that’s disingenuous, but in general we’re able to achieve pretty positive results.
