TMJ also known as Temporomandibular Joint pain can be a debilitating condition when a person tries to chew. TMJ is usually caused by teeth grinding, stress, jaw anatomy misalignment, and chewing.

What Is TMJ Disorder?

TMJ also known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder occurs when there is excessive irritation in the jaw that leads to pain upon jaw movement. TMJ can be classified under these 3 categories

    1. Arthritic Pain within the joint itself leading to bone on bone grinding with an inflammatory cascade ensuing. 
    2. A dislocated jaw can lead to excessive irritation to the joint and cause TMJ symptoms. 
    3. Muscle pain in the masseter muscle can lead to TMJ as it is the muscle controlling jaw function.

What Are The Symptoms of TMJ Disorder: Do I Have TMJ?

TMJ can be characterized as a severe sharp pain upon chewing on one or both sides of the jaw. TMJ is diagnosed when there is a palpable click over the area of the TMJ joint when a patient opens their mouth. This can lead to debilitating pain where a person can not even open their mouth or chew without excruciating disability.

What Is The Treatment For TMJ?

New cutting edge treatment for TMJ consists of Proprietary Peptide Blend Therapy from Regenerative Medicine LA. Our testimonial videos prove that the treatment is safe and effective. Usually 1-2 treatments are needed to significantly reduce TMJ pain by up to 90% of baseline within a week. NSAIDs can be toxic and damaging in the long term, in addition to steroid injections which will cause cartilage wasting. Botox is a temporary relief and can lead to long term muscle atrophy of the masseter due to repeated injections. The best option we have seen work are specialized injections near the area of the joint to reduce inflammation, rebuild cartilage, and reduce sensitivity. The testimonial videos speak for themselves.

How do I relieve TMJ?

Traditionally, you would go to a doctor and receive high doses of NSAIDs like Ibuprofen which destroy your whole body, or have botox injected to temporarily mask the pain. With cutting edge regenerative peptide treatments, one session  can significantly reduce TMJ associated pain. Our results speak for themselves as seen in these testimonial videos.
