In brief: Treatment may vary

Depending on the etiology of the problem will determine what type of treatment is necessary.
Some patients may have a single episode that resolved without any treatment. Other patients may sometimes require a significant course of treatment that can range from behavior modification, medication, splint therapy, physical therapy, adjustment of the occlusion (bite), and/or surgical intervention.
