[WATCH] TMJ Pain Treatment: What You Can Expect at Your First Appointment

Pasadena Pain Management provides comprehensive treatment for TMJ pain. But before you and I begin treatment, we’ll ask you to come in for an initial consult and examination.

That first exam will consist of several things, including:

  • A cancer screening
  • Analysis of any signs of disease (gum disease, or tooth decay)
  • A muscle exam to determine how tender your muscles throughout the head and neck

Following this initial exam, I’ll run a series of tests which will involve full mouth digital x-rays. This will help us to see if there are any underlying problems such as an abscessed tooth.

I will also do a range of motion test which will help us understand if the tightness in your neck is associated with your TMJ-related headaches.

I’ll then run a T-Scan examination which will show me how your teeth come together when you bite down. An unbalanced bite, for example, is a common cause of TMJ pain and subsequent headaches.

Finally, we’ll do a Joint Vibrational Analysis which literally allows me to listen to your jaw joint as it moves. The sounds are then charted, giving us further insight into what’s going on inside the joint.

Following the initial consult and exam, the results of these tests will be analyzed and summarized by me — and a follow up appointment will be made to implement a TMJ pain treatment plan.
