Goals of TMD Treatment

Dr. Hoa Nguyen - Goals of TMD treatment

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) can be debilitating to live with on a daily basis and the ultimate goal for its treatment is to allow people to resume living pain-free. The treatment options that are available are designed to restore the jaw and teeth into the optimal occlusion (bite) position and ultimately eliminate the pain. This can be achieved using a number of different treatment alternatives depending upon the underlying causes and severity of the symptoms.
