The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) treatment refers to treating the joint that connects the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull. Temporomandibular joint disorder, known more commonly as TMD, occurs when there are problems with the muscles and jaws in the face. There are many signs and symptoms of TMD. It's often hard to know for sure if you have TMD, because one or all of these symptoms can also be present for other problems. The dentist can help make a proper diagnosis. TMJ disorders syndrome is a disorder of the jaw muscles and nerves caused by injury to the temporomandibular joint. The temporomandibular joint is the connection between the jawbone and the skull. There are many different types of TMJ treatment such as Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) where this therapy uses low-level electrical currents to relax the jaw joint and facial muscles. For some people, this relieves pain. This treatment can be done at the dentist's office or at home. Ultrasound treatment uses deep heat that is usually applied to the joint if it's sore or doesn't move. It is often used along with physical therapy. Trigger-point injections therapy is where a dentist injects pain medicine or an anaesthetic into tender facial muscles to relieve pain. While the pain medicine is working, you should stretch your jaw muscles with simple exercises and acupuncture. For most people, pain in the area of the jaw joint or muscles does not signal a serious problem. Generally, discomfort from these conditions is occasional and temporary, often occurring in cycles.
