The BEST TMJ Treatment
That Really Works

Even though Temporomandibular Joint Disorder primarily involves the joint where the lower jaw bone or the mandible joins the skull in a hinge-like formation, its manifestation is mostly around the teeth. And because of this, the teeth grinds uncontrollably, leads to uneven bites and causes agonizing pain to most people who are suffering from the TMJ disorder. Bewildered patients who rush to health-care providers are redirected to dental surgeons, and they of course also fail to provide any TMJ relief. However, a retrospective analysis may throw some light on this distressing disorder that has all but made millions of Americans look for heavenly help to get relief.


TMJ Symptoms And Treatment – The History


Since the early thirties, mouth guards were used to prevent teeth clinching, a typical TMJ symptom. However, these were later discarded as these ‘guards’ created more pain than relief and were subsequently replaced by ‘Splints’ that could fit over a few front teeth so that the canines were prevented from coming into contact with each other thus putting an end to clenching. In severe cases, orthodontics was called for re-alignment of the teeth. More invasive TMJ treatment procedures involved ‘washing out’ of the joint by way of inserting two needles into the TMJ (under local anesthesia) while a syringe filled with a cleansing fluid was sent through needle No. 1 that came out via needle No. 2. Patients in general were seemingly happy with this ‘cleansing arrangement’.


Modern Day TMJ Cure


However, the contemporary style of cure for TMJ, apart from taking a holistic approach to it includes neuromuscular treatment that sets its goal on three significant issues, namely, relieving the muscle spasm and pain, stabilizing the bite and also long term management of the problem. One pain alleviating method that is followed concerns the use of ULF-TENS that is commonly referred to as TENS. Here the patient is subjected to Ultra Low Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Neural stimulation that helps relax the muscles by massaging them in a gentle sort of a way. Studies have shown that this in turn help reduce the TMJ pain by stimulating the production of endorphins, which is the natural anesthetic that is produced by the human body.


As for stabilizing the bite, a device called Orthotic is fitted on the teeth at bedtime. Many believe that this can create a reasonably good bite where the jaw joints, head and jaw muscles and the teeth function individually and severally without making extra demands on the system. In short, it is expected to be less strenuous for the organs.


As for long term management of the pain and associated problems, several methods are adapted once the initial treatment modalities prove their worth.


Nevertheless, people who believe in the age old maxim which tells in simple language that “Prevention is better than cure” actually follow it to the letters. And they are probably correct in their approach as they:-


  1. Stay away from Chewing Gums and advise others to do the same.
  2. Never try to crack hard nuts on their own, using mechanical nut crackers instead.
  3. Check them from clenching teeth at being irritated or otherwise.
  4. Practice relaxation techniques to help loosen up the jaw muscles when tensed up.
  5. Try to maintain healthy postures when sitting at work or standing
  6. Keep facial muscles relaxed all through the waking hours.
  7. Regularly apply warm compress on the face and the jaw bones after working hours
  8. Consume adequate drinking water and get ample sleep.
  9. Take anti-inflammatory medications at regular intervals


However, the fact remains that despite all precautionary measures being taken; people do get affected with the TMJ disorder that needs healing where early diagnosis and treatment is a paramount issue. Since the TMJ syndrome advances in stages, growing progressively worse, a minor clicking noise today may develop into a major painful episode tomorrow, needing complex treatment procedures to resolve the issue. Besides, the prognosis always proves better when addressed at an early stage.


In most cases, where TMJ has been finally diagnosed, treatment consists of two pronged attack – One to alleviate the pain and the other to correct the problem. While pain management can be done either through NSAIDs, Trigger Point Injections containing anesthetic to subdue the tenderness or ultrasound; the correction modalities vary from person to person. Although most treatment options are of non-invasive type, surgery is allowed only as the last recourse. But here again, physicians usually advise change of lifestyle as a means of permanent cure instead of long term use of prescription drugs. And since Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is not a life threatening disease condition, patients generally follow the advice.


TMJ Natural Cure


There are some who opt for TMJ natural cure and home remedies too. Then there are many who go for the conventional treatments to solve the TMJ disorder. But the problem is, in most cases these approaches do not work because just the symptoms of the disorder are addressed, whereas the real causes of TMJ remain within the body. So what are needed are holistic remedies because they treat the body as a whole and identify all the contributing causes of TMJ and then they are treated individually. And because of this, once the causes are gone, the symptoms go away themselves. The person can thus get rid of TMJ finally.
