TMJ treatment FAQs

MD DC faq about tmj treatment tidewater dental
How long does TMJ treatment last?

With our commitment to high-quality care and personalized treatment plans, many patients experience long-term relief from TMJ symptoms. The duration of relief can vary based on your condition and commitment to treatment protocols.

How should I care for my TMJ?

TMJ disorder management includes exercises, oral appliance care (if applicable), stress reduction techniques, and regular follow-ups. Consistent practice of recommended therapies is crucial.

What happens if my symptoms worsen?

If your TMJ symptoms worsen or change, contact us immediately. We can adjust your treatment plan to better suit your needs, whether that involves modifying your oral appliance, exploring physical therapy options, or considering other interventions.
