TMJ Treatment

There are a few different ways a TMJ disorder might be treated. One common method is to use a specially made oral appliance to correct the positioning of the jaw. Doing so helps fix any alignment problems that might be putting more pressure than normal on the jaw joints. An oral appliance can also act as a barrier between the teeth to protect against bruxism. We can go into more details about this treatment option if you schedule a consultation with us.
