Children affected by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) can experience pain and discomfort when eating and yawning. You may have heard about TMJ surgery, but this is not the only treatment option.
– There are several non-invasive TMJ treatments available.
– Mouthguards can help correct or manage TMJ if teeth grinding is the cause.
– Orthodontics may help if a bad bite is the cause.
– Surgery is often seen as a last-resort solution.
If your child has been diagnosed with TMJ, let your dentist evaluate the root cause of the problem to decide the best treatment.
