Hi....., Mouth guards may be helpful if you grind your teeth.... If TMD is caused by a disease such as arthritis, a steroid injection into the jaw joint can help reduce pain and swelling in a joint or the surrounding soft tissue.... Open joint surgery may be considered in the rare cases where there is an abnormality within the joint..... Total joint replacement is recommended for an small number of people with severe, long-lasting symptoms and impaired jaw function....
