Self-care

We believe it is very important for the individual to thoroughly understand their condition and to develop skills for decreasing the pain and dysfunction. These include:

  • Training in diet and nutrition
  • Home exercise and jaw stretching program,
  • Postural training, ergonomics
  • Heat and ice
  • Relaxation training
  • Habit reversal training

Remember your teeth should never touch unless you are swallowing or chewing.  All other times there should be space between your teeth.
