Understanding TMJ pain

TMJ disorder (TMD) refers to a condition affecting the jaw joint and surrounding muscles, causing pain, discomfort, and limited jaw movement. This disorder can result from various factors, including jaw injury, teeth grinding, stress, or arthritis.

Common Symptoms

  • Jaw pain or tenderness
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint
  • Locking of the jaw joint
  • Headaches or earaches
  • Facial pain or swelling around the jaw area

Precision TMD therapy with the Kois Deprogrammer

At Excel Dental, we’re excited to offer the Kois Deprogrammer, a state-of-the-art tool for TMJ disorder therapy. This device allows us to accurately identify and treat the root causes of jaw pain by observing your jaw and teeth alignment. Our commitment to advanced technology like this ensures you get effective, tailored treatment.

How we treat TMJ disorders


We provide custom-fitted mouthguards as a non-invasive treatment option. These mouthguards help protect your teeth from grinding or clenching, reducing strain on the jaw joint and alleviating associated pain and discomfort.

Therapeutic Botox

Our approach to Botox for TMD focuses on the area from your ears to your mouth, targeting the specific muscles that cause TMJ pain and encouraging them to relax. This reduces the tension and strain on your jaw joint, making it easier to move your jaw and lessening pain. It also helps reduce the amount of teeth grinding and clenching, especially during sleep, when we tend to apply more pressure.
