If none of the other treatments work, your dental specialist may recommend an irreversible treatment. Examples of irreversible treatments are:

- Orthodontics
- Mandibular repositioning splints
- Extensive dental work
- Adjustment of the bite
- Surgical procedures that may include replacement of parts or the entire jaw joint

Most dentists agree that TMD treatments work best in combination.
