TMJ DISORDER (TMD) TREATMENT OPTIONS
NON SURGICAL TMJ TREATMENT
Our treatment options are all designed to initially relieve pain, spasms and dysfunction of the TMJ, head, face and neck muscles while stabilizing the TMJ:
Dr. Rick Soordhar and Dr. Vick Soordhar are dentists who can successfully and gradually treat and manage TMD (TMJ Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) through several non-surgical options, any of which can potentially dramatically improve the harmony and function of your jaw, head, and neck.
After confirming a TMD diagnosis through a TMJ Evaluation form, TMJ Examination, and TMJ Imaging (MRI and CBCT), Drs. Soordhar and Soordhar can determine an appropriate treatment recommendation for your TMJ Disorder Symptoms (TMJ, TMD, Migraine, Headaches, Concussion, Neck Pain, Eye Pain, Tinnitus, Facial Pain), Vertigo/Dizziness, & Meniere's Disease.
Patients with comorbid medical conditions (Tourette's Syndrome, Cervical Dystonia, Spasmodic Torticollis, Neck Tics, Gait Disorder, Poor Balance, Blepharospasm, and other Motor Movement Disorders) can also have TMJ Disorders.
