If you have TMJ, it probably started with pain and discomfort in your jaw joint and the muscles used to move your jaw. Pain and discomfort do not always signal a problem and usually go away on their own.
Most people try to treat the symptoms at home with pain relievers and ice packs. However, Dr. Robinson can help you if your home remedies are not working. Dr. Robinson can make you a night guard or TMJ splint to help alleviate symptoms. This type of treatment is effective for most, but some patients may benefit from orthodontic treatment and/or surgery to fully correct the situation.
