TMJ Treatment Options

At Tamborello Dentistry in Magnolia, TX near The Woodlands, TX, we offer two treatment options for patients that suffer from TMJ/TMD. Depending on your examination and symptoms, Dr. Tamborello can help you decide which treatment option is best for you.

  • Dental Splints – Bite splints are a custom-made acrylic dental appliance that can fit either over the upper or lower teeth. They are designed to cover all your teeth and are worn to prevent clenching of teeth and to realign your jaw.
  • Mouthguards – Night guards are another custom-made orthotic that covers your teeth and props them apart which decreases the grinding of teeth and allows facial muscles to relax.

Tired of living every day in pain due to your TMD? Contact our Magnolia, TX dental office today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Tamborello. He would be happy to evaluate your oral health and create a customized TMJ treatment plan for you!


What is TMJ treatment?

TMJ treatment is a type of therapy that helps relieve pain caused by the grinding and clicking of your teeth during certain movements. This is done with one or more of the following: surgery, braces, restorative dentistry and orthodontic treatment.

Can TMJ Be Treated?

Yes, TMJ can be treated. It may be easier to treat if you take care of the condition early on, before it becomes severe or causes problems such as pain. The best way to treat your jaw condition is with a dentist who specializes in TMJ treatment and consultations.

What is the main cause of TMJ?

The main cause of TMJ is overuse or improper use of the jaw muscles. This causes wear and tear on the joints and surrounding soft tissue such as tendons, ligaments, or cartilage.

How long does TMJ take to recover?

The TMJ will usually heal on its own, and it takes between 2 to 4 weeks for the symptoms to disappear. However, some people have chronic problems that require therapy or surgery.

What will happen if TMJ is not treated?

If you have TMJ, it can cause pain and discomfort. If you don't treat the symptoms, they will continue to worsen until they become chronic and require treatment.
