Getting TMJ relief can be one of the most important things in a patient's life, especially when the TMJ pain is tremendous. In most cases, these patients need to see a TMJ dentist who treats TMJ syndrome immediately. Ninety percent of the pain comes from overworked and painful jaw muscles and they need to be cared for first.
Dr. Padolsky does not believe in using medications to achieve TMJ relief because medications do not correct the jaw problem that is causing the TMJ headache. The correct TMJ treatment is to take the stress off of the jaw joints to allow the jaw muscles to relax and take a holiday. Almost all TMJ patients seem to have significant nutritional deficiencies, especially in calcium and magnesium. A healthy diet is essential for good health. You are what you eat. Food can act like a medicine when a patient has deficiencies.
Of course, immediate TMJ relief is a big concern of both Dr. Padolsky and many of his patients. However, the long term TMJ problem must also be addressed. Many patients take a short term viewpoint and are only interested in short term pain elimination. However, there is a significant underlying problem in all TMJ patients, a badly positioned jaw joint along with a bad bite.
