TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction) is a condition in which you experience moderate to severe pain in your head or neck region due to a condition in the Temporomandibular Joint, which typically has several treatment options:

  1. Modifying your diet to eat softer foods, which don’t require a lot of chewing.
  2. Getting a night guard or a treatment splint to stop you from grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw and teeth.
  3. A Botox injection that inhibits the ability for the muscles in that area to contract, which relieves your pain.
  4. Splint Therapy which is similar to the nightguard but is actually an orthotic that helps get the joints into their physiologically natural positions and is used to help diagnose where the problem is coming from.
  5. TMJ Next Gen: this is a new FDA approved medical device that is fitted to the inside of the ear and helps stop patients from clenching and grinding which may trigger migraines and headaches and TMD.
