Treating pain related symptoms of TMJ/TMD with Ozone Therapy

tmjointIn the United States, TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorder) affects over 10 million people, being more common in women than men.

What is TMJ/TMD? Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) involves a range of conditions that affect TM joints, jaw muscles, and facial nerves. TMD causes the jaw to twist during opening, closing, or side-motion movements.

Dr. Brady of Craniofacial Pain and Sleep Center has found a successful treatment for pain related symptoms of TMJ/TMD – ozone therapy. Ozone is a specific form of oxygen. In standard atmospheric oxygen, these molecules have two atoms, but the ozone we create has three atoms. This gas is injected into particular muscles or the TM joint, promoting healing of damaged tissue and improved cellular function. Cells that are deprived of sufficient oxygen become weaker and are more vulnerable to invasion or infection. Using ozone therapy stimulates cells to create an enzyme coating around themselves, protecting from invasion or infections.

Dr. Brady introduces the right amount of oxygen concentration in the body through ozone therapy. Doing so allows the muscles that are affecting the temporomandibular joints to relax, providing relief to facial pain caused by TMJ/TMD. Ozone therapy helps increase circulation, clearing arteries and veins, in addition to reducing inflammation.

Ozone therapy is a painless treatment, safe, and effective that works in conjunction with appliance therapy and other modalities.  If you suffer from TMJ/TMD and are seeking an effective solution, contact us today to learn more.
