Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ)

There are a few options for treatment of TMJ. Each patient is treated based on their individual needs. One option to treat TMJ involves the use of a laser. The treatment is called laser biostimulation. This is a painless procedure using the laser light to stimulate the regeneration of tissue and decrease inflammation at the TMJ. Alternative options include orthotic splint therapy, steroid injections, and arthrocentesis. Arthrocentesis is a minimally invasive surgical treatment to break up the tissue adhesions at the joint.
