TMJD, or temporomandibular joint disorder, refers to a group of disorders affecting the joints that join the jaw to the skull (temporomandibular joints, or TMJ). One of the ways our dentist treats the pain of TMJD is with an occlusal splint, a resin-based appliance to be worn when we recommend. Call the office of Daniel Richards, DMD if you are interested in learning more about our splints and treatment options for the TMJ in Vestavia Hills, Alabama.
