Common Questions About TMJ Treatment / Teeth Grinding

Can TMJ go away without treatment?

Although it’s not impossible for your TMJ disorder to heal own, it’s best to not simply wait for the pain to go away. When your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) located below each ear becomes injured or inflamed, it triggers symptoms such as jaw pain, popping sounds, headaches, teeth grinding, and more. Ignoring the pain your TMJ disorder causes can impact your quality of life, and even lead to dental problems if you grind or clench your teeth regularly. So treatment is the ideal way to feel better.

What is the best TMJ treatment?

We recommend noninvasive solutions to your TMJ disorder. Depending on what works best for you, our treatments include ultrasound therapy, massage, oral appliances, force balancing, or microcurrent electrostimulation. We can custom create an oral device that you can wear at night to protect your teeth while you sleep, which is often when people clench or grind their teeth the most. It gives your TMJ a chance to heal and leads to necessary relief.
