Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy focuses on relieving TMJ pain by applying pressure to specific tight spots in your jaw muscles. This straightforward and non-invasive method helps ease pain, relax your muscles, and improve jaw movement. It’s a quick way to get relief and make your jaw feel more flexible and less tight.

Photobiomodulation (PBM)

Photobiomodulation, or low-level laser therapy, uses light to heal and reduce inflammation in your jaw. It’s a painless approach that encourages your cells to repair themselves, easing TMJ symptoms like pain and swelling. This therapy is easy, safe, and can speed up your recovery without any medications or surgery.

Botox

Botox is a newer, effective treatment for TMJ disorders. By relaxing the muscles around your jaw, it can lessen pain, headaches, and the discomfort of teeth grinding. Botox is a quick, minimally invasive way to feel better, with results that can last for months. It's ideal for reducing jaw tension and improving your daily comfort.

The TMJ Treatment Process

Diagnosis

The first step in the treatment of TMJ is a thorough diagnosis. This involves a detailed examination of your jaw, teeth, and facial muscles, as well as an assessment of your symptoms and medical history. Dr. Imran Uddin may also use imaging tests like X-rays to get a clearer view of the temporomandibular joints and to rule out other conditions. Understanding the cause and severity of your TMJ disorder is crucial for creating an effective treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Personalized Treatment Plan

Once the diagnosis is complete, we'll create a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs. This could include one or more of our specialized therapies, such as trigger point therapy, Photobiomodulation, or Botox.

Treatment Implementation

The final step is the implementation of the treatment. Our team will administer the therapies as planned, ensuring you're comfortable throughout the process. We'll also provide you with guidance on how to manage your symptoms at home, helping you maintain the benefits of the treatment in the long term.
