For many with jaw pain, the goal of a doctor’s visit is some kind of temporary relief – some kind of medication to ease the pain even if only for the short-term… However, many are not aware that TMJ pain isn’t a lifetime sentence.
At TMJ and Sleep Center, we aim to find you more than temporary relief. If you’re searching for a TMJ cure, read on to learn more about how we approach your TMJ pain and how we can help.
TMJ Free Cure Consult
If you are experiencing TMJ symptoms, you can schedule your first visit for free, we call it a cure consult. At this appointment, we walk patients through TMJ origins and the extensive associated symptoms with visuals to help you understand. We then share the care process you’d experience if you decide to move forward with treatment.
We design the cure consult to help you get to know our care team and our unique approach to TMJ symptoms and treatment. Unlike most standard medical treatments, everybody involved will have some accountability to experience a cure.
TMJ Treatment Plan
Your TMJ treatment plan doesn’t need to be painful. In fact, most patients experience an almost immediate decrease in pain. However, if you’re seeking a permanent TMJ cure, you will need to be dedicated and consistent with your routine.
Considering the symptoms you report in your initial consultation, you will receive a personalized treatment plan. Tailored to your individual experience, we will be very transparent about what is needed from you to continue treatment.
When you decide to move forward with your treatment plan, we will measure you for an orthotic that is made to be worn at all times. This is continuously working for you, with whatever you are doing at the moment, to help move your jaw back to its correct position. We use documented measurements, not opinions.
Worried that it will be uncomfortable while you are eating? Patients have actually said it is more enjoyable to eat with it in, as it will reduce biting your cheek or any pain you are used to feeling while chewing.
Throughout treatment, we will schedule check up appointments to make sure that everything is going well. We will monitor you to not only ensure that your treatment is working, but motivate your consistency, knowing that you can witness physical results happening.
Your treatment plan may also include a recommendation for postural options (i.e. physical therapy and more). If your jaw is not in its proper place, it affects your posture and how your whole body functions. This causes dysfunction.
