Dr. Jerry Brown answered

Specializes in Prosthodontics

TMJ Treatments: Good day; TMJ treatment starts with least invasive treatment, muscle therapy and orthotics (splint) and medication. In most instances symptoms disappear. It is rare that a patient remains uncomfortable and requires more invasive treatment.
