Splint Therapy for TMJ Pain Relief & Treatment
TMJ Splint Therapy
There are many philosophies and methods of therapy for TMJ pain. Dr. Min believes in the least obtrusive, non surgical form of therapy whenever possible. Similar to a splint used to treat sleep apnea, splints for TMJ therapy are also commonly referred to as a “mouth guard,” “night guard,” “orthotic,” “bite plate,” or “bite appliance.” These splints can be molded in different ways to cover a select few teeth, all of the teeth or molded to all fit top or bottom teeth. Each patient is evaluated on a case by case basis to see who would benefit from TMJ Splint Therapy.
