Your pain may be due to a combination of factors, such as genetics, arthritis or jaw injury. With some patients the problem may occur due to clenching or grinding of their teeth as well.

TMJ Medications

Along with other nonsurgical treatments, these medication options may help relieve the pain associated with TMJ disorders temporarily:

  • Pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. If over-the-counter pain medications aren’t enough to relieve TMJ pain, your doctor or dentist may prescribe stronger pain relievers.
