TMJ Disorders are diagnosed with a comprehensive dental evaluation, including special neuromuscular testing, and x-rays of the Temporomandibular Joints. Once the source and cause of the pain, has been established, Dr. Stern creates your personalized treatment plan.
TMJ Disorder Treatments
The Center for Sleep & TMJ Disorders of Fairfield only offer holistic and non-invasive solutions to bring you the fastest and longest-lasting pain relief.
Dental Splint Therapy – A dental splint worn during the day and while sleeping. It disengages the teeth to allow the muscle to rest and the joint to heal.
Physical Therapy – Alternative physical therapies, such as chiropractic care, massage therapy and acupuncture, are complementary treatments for TMJ disorders.
Laser Light Therapy – In this noninvasive TMJ treatment, light waves are used to stimulate the joint’s natural ability to heal. This is an excellent option for patients whose TMJ disorder is caused by arthritis or disc displacement.
Iontophoresis – For quick pain relief from TMJ disorders, we apply pain-reliving medication directly to the skin.
Ultrasound Therapy – The power of sound waves reduce the amount of swelling and pain in the TMJ area.
Stress Management – Many people who grind their teeth or clench their jaws do so because of stress. By determining the source of stress and using biofeedback and/or neurofeedback, we can reduce the root cause and allow the TMJ disorder heal.
