TMJ Disorder Treatment

    For Patients

    Treatment For TMJ Disorders

    We see chronic TMD as a multi-factorial inflammatory and neurological disorder. Often there is a need to decompress the TMJ with various designs of oral appliances to address the TMJ pathology and remove peripheral inflammatory inputs from the body to the central nervous system (the brain). The goal of TMJ disorder treatment is to try to reduce central nervous system sensitization, as is the goal of TMJ pain treatment.

    TMJ Disorder Treatment May Include:

    • Oral appliances (orthotics)
    • Healthy diet
    • Short-term medication
    • Nasal spray therapy
    • Cold light (laser) therapy
    • Infra-red therapy
    • Manual therapy and home exercises
    • Education and postural re-training
    • Referral to other professional healthcare providers

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
