TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that can cause pain and discomfort in your jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. While TMJ can be a frustrating and painful condition, the good news is that there are treatment options to resolve the condition.

You don’t have to live with debilitating TMJ

At ConfiDental Beverly Hills, we specialize in treating TMJ and associated jaw pain. This condition can affect daily activities, from eating and talking to simply relaxing. That’s why we offer various treatment options to help alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Jaw pain causes and symptoms

Jaw pain is usually associated with swelling and tenderness in the muscles surrounding the jaw joint.

In more severe cases, TMJ and jaw pain treatment range from physical therapy to medication or surgery. It is vital to seek professional advice if you experience ongoing TMJ or jaw pain. 

Other symptoms can include:

  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Soreness
  • Popping sensation when opening and closing the mouth
  • Clicking, popping, or locking the jaw
  • Headaches or earaches

What causes TMJ and jaw pain?

TMJ and jaw pain can be caused by several conditions, such as:

  • Misalignment
  • Grinding teeth
  • Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Injury or infection

What are the treatment options for TMJ?


In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to correct structural issues causing your TMJ. However, this is typically a last resort option, and our team of experts will help you determine the best course of action for your unique situation.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy can also be effective in treating TMJ by helping to strengthen the jaw muscles and improve your jaw’s range of motion. We might recommend specific exercises to relieve TMJ pain and increase your comfort.

Oral appliances

One of the most common treatments for TMJ is an oral appliance, a custom-fit device that helps reposition the jaw and relieve tension in the surrounding muscles. These appliances can help prevent teeth grinding (bruxism) and allow the jaw muscles to relax, reducing pain and inflammation.
