TMJ Treatment refers to the treatment of the Temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which connect the jawbone to the skull. Some facial tissues that regulate chewing are also linked to the jaw which means that any problems in this area might cause head and neck pain, facial pain, ear pain, and also headaches.
Treatment helps you to overcome jaw pain plus stiffness which can have a huge impact on your health.

There are several ways you can minimize the discomfort of TMJ and decrease the occurrences of acute pain.
Heat therapy works indirectly. Pain, especially muscle pain, is often caused by a relative shortage of oxygen in the tissues, which allows the buildup of metabolic waste products like lactic acid. Heat applied to the tissues tends to dilate the blood vessels passing through them. The dilatation increases the blood flow and hence carries more oxygen to the tissues. The oxygen debt is reduced and lactic acid is dispersed and the pain diminishes.

Temporomandibular Joint disorders rarely have a single cause. Many factors may contribute to TMD. Each patient exhibits an individual combination of factors that are determined during history taking, clinical exam, and diagnostic imaging.
Dr. Kremer has a way to ask the muscles, nerves, and the TMJ where the most comfortable position is. Using TMJ treatment he can then determine the best way to obtain that harmonious position and get you back into a balanced and pain-free state.
