How can TMD be treated?

The first step is a comprehensive examination which includes muscle and jaw joint evaluations, digital x-ray imaging, computerized analysis of the bite and inspection of the mouth and other hard and soft tissues of the head and neck. A device called an orthotic or splint is often made, worn and adjusted for the purpose of finding the most optimal position for the jaw. Once the jaw is supported in this physiologically restful position, the strain on the joints and muscles is relieved and the body can begin to heal itself.
