TMJ Treatment from an Indiana TMJ Specialist

Dr. Deldar’s TMJ treatment is accomplished in 3 phases

Phase 1: Easing the pain

This phase is all about relieving your symptoms and is generally accomplished using a TENS unit (Ultra Low Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation). This machine relaxes your jaw muscles by increasing blood flow. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, which helps relieve your pain.

Phase 2: Balancing your bite

Secondly, Dr. Deldar will use a temporary orthotic to stabilize your bite. An orthotic is a plastic mouth piece worn over your lower teeth. With this non-invasive procedure, Dr. Deldar easily adjusts your orthotic without making adjustments to your teeth until the appliance stabilizes your bite.

Phase 3: Making it last

After your bite has been stabilized, the third and final treatment method involves permanently correcting your bite. This can be accomplished in several different ways:

  • Coronoplasty/Equilibration
    Coronoplasty reshapes your teeth’s enamel to correct your bite. This method is most effective for bites that are only slightly misaligned.
  • Removable overlay partials
    Removable overlay partials are permanent orthotics that fit over the back teeth to maintain an aligned bite.
  • Reconstruction
    Reconstruction adjusts your teeth’s position using crowns. This will permanently realign your bite and give you structural jaw support.
  • Orthodontics
    Braces can be used to move your teeth into their ideal position.
