The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)

Patients with TMJ disorders may experience a variety of symptoms, including ear pain, headaches and limited ability to open their mouth.

For these symptoms, consult our team of professionals who are in a good position to correctly diagnose the problem and can treat you in the areas of the mouth, jaws and teeth. However, TMJ disorder diagnosis can be complex and may require special diagnostic procedures.

Treatment for TMJ disorders


Treatment for TMJ disorders may range from conservative dental and medical care to complex surgery. The treatment may involve short-term drugs for pain and muscle relaxation, splint therapy or bite plate, or even stress management counseling. In case if the non-surgical treatment is unsuccessful, and there is clear joint damage, surgery can be recommended.


After TMJ disorders are correctly diagnosed, Dr. Georgiev can suggest you appropriate treatment to relieve the problem.
