4 Exercises for TMJ Pain Relief

In combination with our dentist-recommended TMJ therapies, many patients find that at-home exercises help ease an irritated jaw.

Resisted Opening/Closing

Open (or close) your mouth slowly while placing a thumb under (or on) your chin and pushing gently to resist the movement.


Lightly touch your tongue to the roof of your mouth while slowly opening and closing your mouth.

Side-to-Side Stretch

With a closed mouth, slowly move your jaw to one side while looking to the other. Do not move your head or neck. Repeat on the other side.

Jaw Massage

Relax your jaw while using your fingers to slow massage your jaw joints — circling both clockwise and counterclockwise.
