The Benefits of TMJ/TMD Treatment

Pain Relief

One of the primary benefits of TMJ/TMD treatment is the alleviation of pain and discomfort associated with the condition. Dr. Sandra will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that targets the source of your pain, whether it's muscle tension, joint inflammation, or misaligned bite. By reducing pain and discomfort, TMJ/TMD treatment can help you regain a better quality of life and enjoy daily activities without constant pain or limitations.

Improved Jaw Function

TMJ/TMD can significantly impact your jaw function, making it difficult to open and close your mouth, chew, or speak comfortably. Through targeted treatments such as Botox injections, arthrocentesis, or custom-fitted night guards, Dr. Sandra can help restore proper jaw function. By addressing the underlying causes of your TMJ/TMD, such as muscle imbalances or joint dysfunction, treatment can improve your jaw's range of motion, reduce clicking or popping sounds, and enable you to eat and speak with greater ease and comfort.

Prevention of Further Damage

Left untreated, TMJ/TMD can lead to progressive damage to the jaw joints, muscles, and surrounding structures. By seeking timely treatment from Dr. Sandra, you can prevent further deterioration of your jaw health. TMJ/TMD treatment can help protect your teeth from excessive wear and tear caused by grinding or clenching, reduce the risk of developing arthritis in the jaw joints, and prevent the onset of secondary conditions such as chronic headaches or neck pain. By addressing TMJ/TMD early on you can safeguard your long-term oral health and overall well-being.


TMJ disorders affect an estimated 10 million Americans, with women being more commonly affected than men.

The TMJ/TMD Treatment Process

Comprehensive Evaluation

The first step in TMJ/TMD treatment is a thorough evaluation by our San Antonio orthodontist. During this assessment, she will examine your jaw, teeth, and bite, as well as discuss your symptoms and medical history. Diagnostic tools such as X-rays or CBCT scans may be used to visualize the jaw joints and identify any underlying issues. This comprehensive evaluation allows Dr. Sandra to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Non-Invasive Interventions

Depending on the severity of your TMJ/TMD, our San Antonio orthodontist may recommend non-invasive treatment options as a first line of defense. These may include Botox injections to relax the jaw muscles, custom-fitted night guards to prevent teeth grinding and reduce jaw strain, or physical therapy exercises to improve jaw mobility and reduce pain. Non-invasive interventions are often effective in managing mild to moderate cases of TMJ/TMD and can provide significant relief without the need for more invasive procedures.

Advanced Treatment Options

In more severe cases of TMJ/TMD, or when non-invasive treatments prove insufficient, Dr. Sandra may recommend advanced treatment options. Arthrocentesis, a minimally invasive procedure that involves flushing out the jaw joint to reduce inflammation and improve mobility, may be considered. In some cases, more comprehensive treatment approaches, such as orthodontic therapy to correct bite misalignments or surgical interventions to repair damaged joint structures, may be necessary. Dr. Sandra will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate course of action based on your unique needs and goals.
