TMJ-D treatment is a condition that affects countless individuals seeking relief from jaw discomfort. At Horizon Laser Dental Care, we understand the impact TMJ-D can have on your daily life, from difficulty chewing to persistent headaches. That is why our team is dedicated to providing personalized treatment options tailored to your unique needs.

When it comes to managing TMJ-D, we offer a variety of effective solutions designed to alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Our holistic approach focuses on addressing the underlying causes of TMJ-D to provide long-term relief.

One of the treatment options we offer is BOTOX therapy, a minimally invasive procedure that can help relax the muscles responsible for jaw tension and pain. By targeting specific trigger points, BOTOX injections can reduce muscle spasms and promote greater comfort.

Nerve Blocks
In addition to BOTOX therapy, we may recommend nerve blocks to alleviate pain associated with TMJ-D. These injections target the nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals, providing temporary relief while we address the underlying issues contributing to your discomfort.

Splint Therapy
Splint therapy is another effective option for managing TMJ-D. Custom-fitted oral appliances are worn over the teeth to stabilize the jaw and prevent teeth grinding and clenching, which can exacerbate symptoms of TMJ-D.

For those with misaligned teeth or bite issues contributing to TMJ-D, orthodontic treatment may be recommended. By correcting the alignment of your teeth and bite, orthodontics can help alleviate pressure on the temporomandibular joint and reduce symptoms.

Medications may also be prescribed to manage pain and inflammation associated with TMJ-D. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, and tricyclic antidepressants are commonly used to provide relief and improve overall comfort.

At our practice, we understand that each patient’s experience with TMJ-D is unique, which is why we take a personalized approach to treatment. Our goal is to address the root cause of your symptoms and provide comprehensive care to help you achieve lasting relief.
