Extensive research is being conducted on the safety and effectiveness of TMD/orofacial pain treatments.  Most researchers and clinicians strongly recommend reversible and conservative treatments for TMD.  Even when TMD symptoms are long standing and severe, most TMD patients do not require invasive treatment.  Treatments designed to permanently change the bite or reposition the jaw with orthodontics or dental reconstruction are not usually necessary and should be undertaken with great care.

If irreversible treatment (permanent change) for TMD or orofacial pain is contemplated, we recommend getting a reliable second opinion.

Specially trained dentists, physical therapists, psychologists and physicians are usually the best source for the proper diagnosis and management of TMD and Orofacial pain.
