      Conservative Treatments

      Jaw Relaxation: In the initial therapy, the jaw is relaxed by utilizing warm compresses. If there are any dental injuries, then instead of warm compresses we make use of ice packs. Along with this, pain-relieving medications are also prescribed. Jaw relaxation can heal temporomandibular joints. In this treatment, we also follow stress-reduction techniques which will release stress as well as relax your jaw and body. The following care is expected from the patient’s side:

      1. Consume only soft foods and avoid chewy foods.
      2. Avoid eating chewing gum or hard candy.
      3. Avoid wide opening of your mouth.
      4. Practice muscle stretching or relaxation exercises exactly as guided by our TMJ specialist.

      Fitting Splint: A splint or bite plate of plastic is fitted over your teeth by our specialists. This acts as a guard between the upper and lower teeth. This helps in:

      1. Reducing Clenching
      2. Teeth grinding
      3. Ease muscle tension

      Invasive Treatments

      TMJ Arthrocentesis procedure
      Invasive techniques are used when conservative techniques fail to ease your problem. In this technique two needles are inserted in temporomandibular joint so as to wash it thoroughly. One needle is attached with cleansing solution filled syringe. This fluid exists through the other syringe.
      This method suits many and the pain gets back to normal. Sometimes, pain relieving medications are also injected in similar way.

      Surgery
      We generally avoid advising this treatment to our valuable patients as it is irreversible. We apply it in extreme cases where the joints in the jaw are replaced with artificial implants.
