What are treatment options for TMJ / TMD?

TMJ-TMD in San Francisco - Dr. Arellano in San Francisco, has experience in creating oral appliances for situations such as TMJ.

TMJ, or temporomandibular joint syndrome, is a medical condition that involves the alignment (or misalignment, rather) of an individual’s joint in their jawbone. This can cause clicking and popping sounds when an individual chews or talks, and can cause a variety of problems such as pain from the neck up, headaches, ear pain, and dizziness. Sometimes it can be caused by excessive teeth grinding which can cause pain from the tension and cause wear to teeth thereby affecting an individual’s smile.

While there are other more holistic ways to deal with the symptoms of TMJ, as well as surgical options when all else fails, bite plates and mouth guards are typically recommended as a first attempt at treating someone that is experiencing TMJ symptoms. It is the first line of treatment that is conservative, affordable, and highly successful for many individuals dealing with this syndrome.
