What is TMJ Treatment?

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders can cause significant discomfort and impact daily life. At Los Robles Oral Surgery, nestled in the tranquil town of Los Gatos, CA, we recognize the importance of providing effective TMJ treatments to alleviate pain and restore optimal jaw function. Under the experienced guidance of Dr. Roger Lau, our esteemed oral surgeon, we offer a range of innovative TMJ treatments, including Botox, arthrocentesis, and surgical options, to address TMJ-related concerns comprehensively.

TMJ Treatment with Botox: Botox, commonly associated with cosmetic procedures, has also found applications in medical and dental fields. For TMJ disorders, Botox is administered into the jaw muscles to reduce muscle tension and alleviate pain. By relaxing the muscles responsible for jaw movement, Botox treatment can provide relief from TMJ-related discomfort and improve jaw function.

Arthrocentesis for TMJ: Arthrocentesis is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat certain TMJ disorders. During this procedure, a small needle is inserted into the joint space, and a sterile solution is injected to wash out debris and reduce inflammation. Arthrocentesis can improve joint mobility, alleviate pain, and restore normal jaw function.

Surgical Options for TMJ: In cases where conservative treatments are not effective, surgical intervention may be necessary. TMJ surgery aims to address structural issues within the joint, such as damaged or displaced discs, cartilage, or bone. Surgical options include joint repair, joint replacement, or procedures to reposition the jaw. Surgical interventions are tailored to the specific needs of the patient and their TMJ condition.
