Most often TMJ pain settles on its own, however this could be facilitated by giving simple rest to the jaw which would involve taking only soft diet and restricting the mouth opening. At Mukha Facial Surgery & Implant Center, Dr.Girish Rao might also teach you specific excercises which will help to re-train and strengthen the jaw muscles.
In addition a soft splint may be given to be worn at night times which will help in preventing grinding or clenching of teeth at nights. In situations where the pain in the joint is excruciatingly severe, certain injections may be given to the joint which will reduce the pain and inflamation. In rare circumstances a surgical intervention of the jaw joint might be required.
Dr Girish and his team at Mukha believes that brining in improvements to people's face brings in a lot more confidence and postiveness in them. We strive hard to educate and make our patients understand about their present condition, treatment and improvements that they can achieve by undergoing these procedures.
