TMJ Diagnosis & Treatment
How To Diagnos and Treat Patients
The treatment options continued
If the patient has used the TMJ Appliance™ for several months and they haven’t had adequate relief from their symptoms, there are a few options available. One option is to custom-make a splint and the other is to do composite build ups. MRC have developed a procedure for composite build ups know as Myolay™. Building up the four lower molars with composite by two to three millimetres can provide good joint decompression and also help to re-align the occlusion.
The clinical diagnosis of TMJ disorder is all about keeping things simple. Combining quality patient education with simple yet effective diagnostic techniques and appliances makes this type of treatment easy to offer in your practice.
Our Myobrace® Patient Education CD-ROM features information, videos, animations and definitions to help doctors explain TMJ disorder to patients.
