There are many causes of TMDs, including head injuries, overbites, underbites, and teeth clenching and grinding. Leveraging recent advances in non-surgical TMD treatments, the treatment center now aims to alleviate chronic symptoms within three weeks – symptoms such as head, neck, and face pain, jaw stiffness and locking, chronic headaches, and pain while chewing.
According to a spokesperson for the clinic, “At the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance, we are dedicated to helping Orange County patients find complete relief from TMJ pain without the need for invasive and costly surgery.”
As such, the healthcare professionals will devise a custom treatment plan that addresses the root cause of such symptoms.
More common in women than in men, jaw pain and TMDs have been linked to teeth misalignment, jaw injuries, genetics, and stress. The clinic’s team evaluates each patient’s circumstances to diagnose the condition. These personalized treatments often combine massage, therapeutic exercises, and stress management with more common modalities, such as oral appliance therapy.
The clinic offers ultrasound therapy to relieve chronic pain and relax facial muscles, as well as Botox injections for treatment-resistant forms of TMD. It can also provide myofascial trigger point release therapy that targets tension to increase flexibility.
