Treatment forTMJ Disorders

At Coastal Headache Clinic in Jacksonville, NC, we offer personalized treatment plans for alleviating TMD pain. Call (910) 238-2050 to find out how. 

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders affect the joints that connect your jaw and skull, causing facial pain, headaches, and tenderness. Many people who clench or grind their jaws or have an improper bite suffer from temporomandibular disorder (TMD) symptoms that affect the area’s muscles, joints, nerves, and bones. 

Our Individualized Treatment Options for TMJ Disorders

We will create a treatment plan based on your age, medical history, health, and condition. Some people can see pain reduction from simple at-home therapies, while others require more aggressive strategies. 

Rest and Diet Changes

The first way to resolve TMD is by resting your jaw. We recommend eating only soft foods, avoiding extreme jaw movements, and applying heat and ice intermittently. 

Physical Therapy and Behavioral Changes

We can also try relaxation and stress management techniques to reduce jaw clenching and prevent the issue from reforming. If you clench your jaw at night, we may recommend a night guard. 

Medications or Injections

We can offer anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants, painkillers, and anti-anxiety drugs to reduce pain and calm the muscles surrounding the area. We may also recommend Botox or trigger-point injections for targeted relief. 

Electrical Stimulation

Various technologies, like transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and radio wave therapy, can stimulate the TMJ with low-level electrical currents. Electrical stimulation can offer muscle relaxation and pain relief. 

Corrective Treatments

Corrective dental treatments, like braces, can fix your jaw alignment and prevent future pain. In more severe scenarios, we may recommend surgery.
