TMJ Therapy

For those that suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and dysfunction we have the ability to improve most cases through occlusal splint therapy and subsequent bite equilibration.  Most TMJ issues begin as muscle related problems and can be improved through the use and wear of a properly made, and fine-tuned occlusal splint.

Once the joint dysfunction has improved, and is feeling comfortable again, it is often possible to do an occlusal equilibration (bite adjustment) to achieve harmony between the jaw joints and the teeth which then stabilizes the complex chewing system.
