Nonsurgical Treatments for TMJ Disorders (TMD) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: TMJ disorders, or TMD, are problems with your jaw joint and chewing muscles. The most common symptom is pain in the joint and nearby muscles. Pain from a TMJ disorder may go away in a few weeks or months with little or no treatment. If treatment is necessary, begin with simple self-care methods. Choose soft foods. Avoid wide yawns and gum chewing. Use ice packs. Learn ways to lower stress. Ask your doctor about exercises to help restore normal movement. Over-the-counter pain medications or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, may help with pain. Your doctor may also prescribe medicine to relax your muscles, or an anti-depressant. The most widely used treatment is a stabilization splint, also known as a bite guard. It's a plastic piece that fits over your upper or lower teeth to help relieve pain. If you have questions about treatments for TMJ disorders, or are having pain in your TMJ that won't go away, talk to your healthcare provider.
