Many pain management programs use acupuncture as a part of a comprehensive pain management program. At the present time, the effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for chronic temporomandibular disorders (including those who have had a number of TMJ surgeries) is inconclusive. However, we have learned from some patients that acupuncture can produce some pain relief for a short period of time.
Careful consideration should be given to the selection of a skilled acupuncturist who is familiar with the management of chronic temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders.
