Most often TMJ pain settles on its own, however this could be facilitated by giving simple rest to the jaw which would involve taking only soft diet and restricting the mouth opening. Dr.Girish might also teach you specific excercises which will help to re-train and strengthen the jaw muscles.
In addition a soft splint may be given to be worn at night times which will help in preventing grinding or clenching of teeth at nights. In situations where the pain in the joint is excruciatingly severe, certain injections may be given to the joint which will reduce the pain and inflamation. In rare circumstances a surgical intervention of the jaw joint might be required.
