Medications can play a crucial role in managing TMJ disorders. Pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and muscle relaxants help reduce pain and inflammation, providing relief from discomfort.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy involves specific exercises designed to strengthen jaw muscles and improve joint function. These exercises can enhance mobility and reduce symptoms over time.

Oral Appliances

Custom-made oral appliances, such as splints or mouthguards, are designed to prevent teeth grinding (bruxism) and reduce pressure on the temporomandibular joint. These devices are tailored to fit your mouth, ensuring comfort and effectiveness.

Corrective Dental Procedures

For patients with misalignment issues, corrective dental procedures such as orthodontics can be highly beneficial. Proper alignment of the teeth and jaw helps alleviate stress on the TMJ and reduces pain and dysfunction.

Surgical Options

In severe cases where conservative treatments are not sufficient, surgical intervention may be necessary. Surgical options can include procedures to repair or replace the damaged joint, providing long-term relief and improved jaw function.

Comprehensive Approach

Our comprehensive approach at Thrive Dental & Orthodontics ensures that each patient receives the most appropriate and effective treatment for their TMJ disorder. By combining various therapies and customizing the treatment plan, we aim to provide optimal results and enhance your quality of life.
