Specializes in

Night Guard : If you are diagnosed with tmd, a night guard appliance is the best treatment to start with. It is non-invasive and in my office it is 95% effective.

Dr. John Van der Werff answered

Specializes in Dentistry

Get diagnosis: The best thing to do is to see a dentist who can diagnose what is wrong. Tmd is not a diagnosis but a group of problems related to the jaw joint. Once a person has a diagnosis appropriate treatment can be discussed. Rarely does treatment involve extensive dental care or surgery.
