Post-accident TMJ / Trauma Evaluation & Treatment

Jaw pain post-accident

Post-accident or post-trauma temporomandibular joint (TMJ) evaluation and treatment involve assessing and addressing any damage or dysfunction that may have occurred in the TMJ area due to an injury or trauma. Trauma to the jaw, face, or head from accidents, falls, sports injuries, or other incidents can lead to various TMJ-related issues, including dislocation, fractures, ligament injuries, disc displacement, muscle strain, or temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). These could lead to a range of symptoms such as:

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or opening the mouth fully
  • Clicking, popping, or locking of the jaw
  • Headaches or earaches
  • Muscle stiffness or soreness in the face or neck

Trauma Evaluation Treatment Services

Our specialized TMJ post-accident and trauma evaluation treatment services are designed to assess and address these concerns to help restore optimal oral health and function. Treatment options may include TMJ orthotics, physical therapy, orthodontic intervention, bite adjustments, or, in severe cases, jaw surgery.

It’s crucial for individuals who have experienced trauma to the jaw, face, or head to seek prompt medical attention. Acute TMJ issues, if left untreated, can lead to chronic pain and functional problems. A tailored treatment plan, based on a thorough evaluation, can help manage symptoms and improve the long-term outcome for individuals recovering from TMJ-related trauma.
