At Miss Lou Family Dentistry, we always want you to feel great about your oral health. This includes any issues with your jaw or TMJ. When you come in for your appointment, we’ll have you fill us in on what you’ve been experiencing. Together, we’ll devise a treatment plan that will solve your TMJ issues and return you to comfort.

What to Expect

1. All treatment starts with a consultation to determine the best option for you. We’ll ask you questions about the particulars of what you’re experiencing to understand the location, timing, and root issue of why you’re experiencing TMJ pain.

2. A TMJ evaluation will be administered to gather further information. This evaluation will include observation, tests, and a facial muscle exam.

3. We’ll then perform an exam and take x-rays to determine the state of your oral health and better visualize what might be causing you discomfort.

4. We’ll present our recommended treatment plan, laying out what you can expect and answering all of your questions.

Common treatments for TMJ disorder include:


  • Botox: While Botox is known the world over for its de-wrinkling properties, it also does a great job relaxing muscles to ease TMJ pain
  • Night guards: These custom guards relax your jaw and discourage clenching while sleeping. Comfortable to wear and effective!
  • Invisalign: Often TMJ pain stems from a misaligned bite. Invisalign is a great way to straighten teeth and align your bite.
