TMD / TMJ

Orofacial Pain and TMD:

Treatment for TMD or orofacial pain can be quite complex. The most important factor is assessing whether your TMJ is healthy or not. Before you undergo any treatment for your TMD, Dr. Bisson must determine what is the cause/source of your pain or discomfort.

Muscle pain from your improper bite?

Disorder from within the joint itself?

Disorder that mimics TMD?

The vast majority of TMD pain is NOT pain from within the joint. Most pain is a result of your chewing muscles in spasm from your teeth not fitting together properly.

Once the source of pain is determined, Dr. Bisson can discuss with you your treatment options.
