TMJ Treatment

TMJ pain and symptoms may need to be checked by more than one medical specialist, such as your primary care provider, a dentist, or an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor, depending on your symptoms. Some dentists specialize in TMJ diagnosis and treatment.

A thorough examination may involve:

  • *A dental examination to show if you have poor bite alignment
  • *Feeling the joint and connecting muscles for tenderness
  • *Pressing around the head for areas that are sensitive or painful
  • *Sliding the teeth from side to side
  • *Watching, feeling, and listening to the jaw open and shut
  • *X-rays to show abnormalities

In some cases, the results of the physical exam may appear normal.
