You’re probably used to going to the dentist for teeth cleaning or even treating cavities, but have you ever thought of visiting your dentist to treat a headache or even migraines? The truth is that if you suffer from TMJ disorder, there is help available for you!

How We Treat TMJ
It’s important to remember that there is no standard test used to diagnose TMJ pain. Instead Dr. Frazar relies on her decades of experience to diagnose your symptoms. Your TMJ treatment at The Houston Dentists starts with a physical exam, including a review of your health history and the symptoms you’re experiencing. We’ll then discuss your TMJ treatment options, which may include:
- Making changes to your diet and habits — for example, no more chewing gum!
- Creating a custom device to adjust the alignment of your jaw
- Designing a bite guard to prevent tooth grinding and stress on your TMJ
- Prescribing pain medication or anti-inflammatories to provide relief from TMJ pain
- Helping you develop methods to lower your stress levels
- Trudenta therapy
