TMJ/TMD Treatment in Houston, TX

TMJ/TMD Treatment in Houston, TX

TMJ pain is caused by the inflammation of the tempomandibular joint in the jaw. The pain can be very intense and often becomes overwhelming. Seeking early treatment for the pain is vital.

There are many reasons that people suffer from TMJ/TMD disorder. Usually, the condition is exacerbated by a prior injury, existing arthritis, grinding teeth while you sleep, a misalignment of the jawbone, or a broken bone or congenital disability. Sometimes TMJ pain is caused for unknown reasons and can last for many years. Our staff can help identify the causes and recommend a TMJ treatment in Houston that is right for you.

What Can We Do to Treat TMJ/TMD Pain?

Luckily, most temporomandibular joint disorders can be eliminated with treatment, allowing the patient to avoid surgery. There are many options available for patients who want to avoid surgical treatment and find a less invasive method to eliminate and manage TMJ/TMD pain.

Mouth guards worn at night can prevent grinding your teeth; corticosteroid shots can eliminate swelling; alternating heat and ice treatments combined with prescribing a muscle relaxer as well as mental awareness techniques to help promote jaw muscle relaxation all offer patients degrees of relief. Ultimately you may require surgery, but it’s always in the patient’s best interests to attempt alternative treatment methods before attempting the most drastic available option.
