All TMJ Treatments, and therapies for jaw discomfort and non-TMJ related face pain are assigned after the diagnostics are performed and reviewed. The diagnosis is designed to bring to light the underlying root causes of your pain and only then are treatment protocols selected to correct the various forces creating your unique pain condition.
