Proper treatment for TMJ involves a lot of steps and different processes. From the consultation to using a ULF-TEN to relax the jaw muscles, and even being fitted for a bite splint, a lot of time and work is invested in TMJ treatment for both the dentist and the patient. However, we all know that not every treatment is going to be perfect for everyone. Because of this, patients may become frustrated at the fact that nothing seems to be curing their TMJ or alleviating the symptoms.
