Some health care providers may recommend an injection in the temporomandibular joint to help alleviate TMJ problems. Below we list a number of such treatments. Few clinical studies on the effects of these treatments on the temporomandibular joint (TM joint) are available. It is important to note that these treatments have NOT been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating TMJ disorders. We recommend that you ask your doctor about the basis for recommending the treatment, as well as about the potential risks.
