During your consultation the initial focus will be on diagnosis. Diagnosis for TMJ primarily consists of a four- step process to determine if:
- There’s physical evidence that there is a conflict between the teeth and the jaw joints
- There’s pain in the jaw joints or muscles
- The pain can be proven to be linked to the conflict
- Relieving the conflict between the teeth and the jaw joints stops the pain
If all four steps check out you can be sure that your pain IS due to TMJ dysfunction syndrome and we can help you.
