Find Out About Your TMJ Options

The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) on either side of your head function as hinges for your upper and lower jaws. When these joints become irritated, the pain can be significant.

At your consultation, Dr. Williams will give you a thorough exam to determine the best TMJ treatment for you. We offer suffering patients several ways to get relief, including:

  • Custom mouthguards and splints. We use a “stair-step” approach of three different oral appliances depending on your needs and situation. These appliances will gently adjust the position of your jaw to reduce pressure on your TMJ. Dr. Williams will work closely with you to determine which one is right for you.
  • Stretching exercises. Our team can teach you several jaw stretching exercises and relaxation techniques you can do at home to help eliminate your pain.
  • Muscle relaxers. If needed, Dr. Williams can prescribe a safe medication to help your jaw joint relax so you feel better. Muscle relaxers often work well along with other types of treatment to take the edge off your most nagging pain.
  • Bruxism treatment. Bruxism (teeth grinding) is both a cause and symptom of TMJ pain. Our custom oral appliances will keep you from grinding and clenching your teeth to help reduce your discomfort.
  • Migraine and headache treatment. Research has shown that teeth grinding and clenching are causes of migraine and tension headaches. We can reduce the number and severity of your headaches through treatment to stop your teeth grinding.
