Treatment of TMJ

Initial treatment for TMJ disorder can range from resting the joints, switching to a soft diet and prescribing medication to stabilization of the joints through the use of a specially designed and custom-adjusted hard acrylic orthotic appliance that fits on the top of the teeth. This appliance, when properly designed, redistributes the stresses on the TMJ’s and muscle system while specifically guarding and guiding certain joint movements.
