TMD Treatment Options
Two of the most frequently used TMD treatment options include night guards and dental work.
Night guards are special devices that are fitted to the patient’s mouth. During sleep, these night guards keep the mouth open. This puts less pressure on the jaw. For sleep apnea sufferers, the night guard may also come in handy and put a stop to excessive snoring.
Dental work can also be a valuable way to address TMD situations. For instance, if the bite is misaligned, dental work to bring it into alignment can relieve pressure on the jaw joint. The type of dental work recommended will vary from patient to patient.
