TMJ ASSESSMENT & THERAPY

The Tempero Mandibular Joint also known as the TMJ are the 2 joints that connect the lower jaw to the skull. The lower jaw's good function is ensured by the TMJ. TMJ features an articular disc between the two bony surfaces, similar to the spinal vertebra. Ligaments and surrounding muscles keep this disc in its normal position. The TMJ is in close proximity to a branch of the trigeminal nerve. Chewing and jaw movement can be uncomfortable and difficult as a result of injury or wear and strain to this joint.

 

TMJ Syndrome is characterized by recurrent headaches. TMJ problems are frequently caused by whiplash injuries. An accurate health history, a physical examination of the head and neck, a radiographic examination, and an oral examination are all part of the TMJ assessment. 

The causal issues are addressed in treatment. We create intra-oral appliances that support the jaw during the day and at night. Low-intensity sound shock-wave therapy in combination with homeopathy and counseling is provided.
