If you’ve been living with persistent jaw pain, ear pain and headaches, you could have TMD – temporomandibular jaw disorder. TMD can often be traced back to an improper bite, misaligned jaw joints, or an injury to the jaw or face. TMD treatment can relieve the discomfort. Although TMD treatment varies from patient to patient, it typically involves one or several procedures, including the use of an orthotic splint, enamel reshaping, dental crowns, orthodontic treatment, or night guards. The goal of TMJ treatment is to stabilize your bite so that your teeth, jaw muscles and jaw joints work properly together without strain – and without pain!
