Treatment for TMJ disorders

Our oral surgeons are experienced in providing successful treatment plans to patients suffering from TMJ disorders. When you visit our office for treatment, you will find that our staff is very welcoming, friendly, and eager to address all of your questions and concerns. Many times, conservative treatments such as using a mouthguard at night, medications, and steroid injections are effective at managing the painful symptoms of a TMJ disorder. If your condition is severe, corrective surgery may be recommended if other noninvasive measures fail. Your oral surgeon will discuss all of your options with you because we believe in keeping all of our patients well-informed and comfortable throughout every step of treatment.
