Treatment for TMJ Disorder can vary from simple, self-care to complicated surgical procedures. It is very important when seeking TMD treatment that the patient exhausts all conservative options before moving on to invasive treatments. When you first believe that you may have a temporomandibular joint problem, there are things that you can do at home to relieve your pain, such as: Eating soft foods such as yogurt, eggs, cereal, oatmeal, etc. (we will have an article on nutrition soon) to give your joints a rest.
