At home treatments:

At home treatments:

  • Consciously avoid any untoward pressure on the joints like clenching of teeth
  • Apply an ice pack to the affected area on the jaw for 10 to 15 minutes, followed by a warm compress of 5 to 10 minutes to relieve pain. This method can be repeated several times a day if needed.
  • Avoid eating chewy or hard foods including raw vegetables and fruits, popcorn, gum or candy. Stick to softer foods such as yoghurt, cooked vegetables, rice etc. Food should be eaten in smaller bites to avoid opening the jaw too wide.
  • Relax the jaw when possible & Avoid activities that involve opening the mouth too wide.
