The treatment that is appropriate for a patient with a TMJ disorder varies case by case. This is because TMJ disorders are actually a range of associated symptoms and underlying causes rather than one simple problem. Not all TMJ disorders are alike.
As such, there are many treatments that could potentially treat any individual case of TMJ disorder, but not all. Possible treatments can be as simple as applying an icepack to the jaw, avoiding crunchy or chewy foods like chips and gum, or taking mild over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin, Advil, or Tylenol. There are also more permanent treatments, like replacing missing teeth with dental implants that interface with the jawbone to replace the missing root.
