Temporomandibular Disorders -
Dental Care and You
Temporomandibular Disorders – Dental Care and You. Routine maintenance of the teeth and gums is important in the overall management of TMJ disorders, as it helps to reduce the risk of dental disease and the need for invasive dental treatments. This guide provides oral hygiene self-care tips that you can do at home, as well as suggestions for dental appointments.
Nutrition Guide Booklet
TMJ Nutrition Guide Booklet. The pain and jaw dysfunction associated with TMJ disorders often affects your ability to chew and swallow food. How and what you are able to eat can seriously compromise your nutrition and health status – an aspect of TMJ that is often overlooked by patients and health care providers. We specifically developed this guide to help those with compromised oral function maintain a healthy diet in spite of oral disability.
Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions - Brochure

This easy-to-read brochure addresses how COPCs are diagnosed, the complexity of the chronic pain experience, and how to work with your health care provider to develop a treatment plan.

It includes topics such as: understanding the nervous system and how the body processes pain; the impact of sleep, mood and other factors on chronic pain; developing an individualized treatment plan; tracking progress; shared decision-making; and improving communication with your clinicians.
