TMJ Treatment in Flower Mound, Texas
At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of North Texas, we understand that finding relief for the problems of TMD can be frustrating and confusing. With proper evaluation and diagnosis, the root cause of the condition of Craniofacial Pain can be successfully treated. Our highly trained staff is exclusively dedicated to the comprehensive evaluation for proper diagnosis and implementation of non-invasive treatment therapies. Using state of the art technology and research-based treatment in a caring and friendly environment, we recognize and treat each patient as a unique individual. In doing so, we can use customized oral appliances that, while they look similar, are much more than a night-guard. Our appliances have the ability to improve the airway, protect the upper and lower teeth, prevent clenching and grinding, improve sleep disorders, and more!
A Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block (SPG) is the injection or inhalation of a numbing agent to instantly relieve head and facial pain. SPG blocks can also give immediate relief of some symptoms caused by TMD, such as limited range of motion. At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of North Texas, our method is the least invasive, as we only administer SPG by inhalation thru the nose.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy is our non-invasive go-to for the reduction of pain and inflammation. This simple treatment accelerates the healing process and offers so many benefits! Improved immune response, increased circulation, and accelerated metabolic activity are just a few of the perks of this pain-free therapy.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger points develop when muscles are constantly or continuously over-stimulated, often causing generalized pain to the area. A trigger point injection, using a temporary numbing agent, provides numbness that lasts for a few hours and relives pain almost instantly. Therapeutic pain relief can last months!
Other immediate relief tactics, such as nutritional counseling, the inhalation of Oxygen or Nitrous Oxide, multi-discipline referral coordination, the application of cold and heat packs, or the use of muscle relaxant drug prescriptions are offered at TMJ and Sleep Therapy Centre to aide in our patient’s success.
