A splint from Dr. Conditt will be designed to hold the jaw at its proper alignment in a comfortable fashion, gradually creating long-term, stabilizing changes. Once a certain period of time has passed (around three months) of diligent use, Dr. Conditt will reassess your condition and determine if your symptoms have been positively affected in any significant way. Depending on the severity of the patient’s TMD, they may be finished with therapy at this point in their journey, or they may need to wear the splint for maintenance purposes at certain times of the day.
The reason so many doctors misdiagnose TMD is because they only look at one part of the body, usually the one that is experiencing pain, and end up missing the underlying cause: strain and stress in the TMJ. Dr. Conditt, however, looks at the jaw, head, and neck as one interconnected system. This enables him to get to the root of a patient’s pain so he can treat the source of the problem rather than just the symptoms, leading to better and longer lasting relief.
