TMJ Treatment Procedure

The TMJ treatment procedure begins with a thorough evaluation, during which the TMJ specialist will assess your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and may order imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRI scans, to evaluate the jaw joint's condition. Once the diagnosis is established, the specialist will develop a customized treatment plan based on your specific needs. TMJ treatments may include jaw exercises, oral appliances, medications, physical therapy, or in some cases, minimally invasive procedures or surgery. The goal of the procedure is to address the underlying cause of the TMJ disorder and alleviate your symptoms effectively.
