No More Jaw Pain With TMJ/TMD Therapy

No More Jaw Pain With TMJ/TMD Therapy

While TMJ refers to the temporomandibular joint, TMD refers to the disorder of this joint. These problems can have a negative effect on the jaw and the muscles of the face that control it as well as your oral health.

The temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. Since Dr. Stein is trained extensively in facial and oral anatomy, she is uniquely qualified to treat TMJ/TMD disorders in San Francisco.

Stop Living With Jaw Discomfort and Pain!

It may be difficult for you to completely open your mouth due to the pain. This can sometimes feel like muscle stiffness or locking. If you hear popping, grinding, or clicking noises when you move your jaw, you may be able to benefit from TMD treatment at Sutter Dental Collective. Schedule an appointment today!

The Symptoms of TMJ





Some methods can help you get some pain relief without a visit to a doctor. For example, you can eat softer foods, apply ice packs to the jaw, and massage the sore areas of your jaw. Keep in mind that these steps are not a permanent solution and can only provide temporary relief. In addition to these at-home care tips to initially ease your discomfort, we strongly recommend you come into our San Francisco practice for a consultation as soon as possible.


Botox is commonly used to enhance your features cosmetically, but it can also be used to treat TMD pain. Dr. Stein will inject Botox into the muscles of the jaw, forehead, and temples to limit the function of those muscles for a certain period of time. As a result, your muscles and tendons will begin to heal and the pain should decrease in intensity after the procedure. It’s not a permanent fix, however, so we recommend coming in for follow up procedures when the treatment wears off.
