Questions about TMJ treatment

TMJ treatment alleviates pain associated with the jaw. The process begins with a discussion of symptoms and a scan of the jaw to determine the source of the pain. Following diagnosis, treatment is administered. This could be as simple as prescribing painkillers, or as complex as carrying out surgery.
Once diagnosed, TMJ disorder can usually be treated right away, though this ultimately depends on the severity of the condition. Minor cases can be fixed in a matter of weeks with appropriate care, while more severe cases that require mouth reconstruction or oral splints will take a few months to fix.
In some cases, tinnitus is directly linked to the muscles and ligaments of the TMJ. If your dentist finds that TMJ dysfunction is responsible for your tinnitus, they’ll usually be able to treat it via drug therapy, physical therapy, osteopathy and other common forms of TMJ treatment.
