TMJ Treatments

The temporomandibular joints

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are a common condition that can cause pain and discomfort in the jaw and surrounding areas. At our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice, we offer a range of treatment options for TMJ disorders, including:

  1. Non-surgical treatments: In many cases, TMJ disorders can be effectively treated without surgery. Non-surgical treatments may include physical therapy, medication, lifestyle modifications, and the use of oral appliances such as splints or mouthguards.
  2. Arthrocentesis: This minimally invasive procedure involves the insertion of needles into the joint to irrigate and flush out the joint fluid. It can be an effective treatment for certain types of TMJ disorders.
  3. Arthroscopy: This minimally invasive procedure involves the insertion of a small camera into the joint to evaluate and treat problems. It can be used to repair or remove damaged tissue and can be an effective treatment for more severe cases of TMJ disorders.
  4. Open-joint surgery: In rare cases, open-joint surgery may be necessary to repair or replace the joint. This procedure involves making an incision in the skin to access the joint and can be an effective treatment for severe or advanced cases of TMJ disorders.

At our practice, we understand the impact that TMJ disorders can have on our patients’ quality of life, and we are committed to providing personalized and effective treatment options to alleviate their symptoms and restore function. We work closely with our patients to develop customized treatment plans that meet their unique needs and goals, and we use the latest techniques and technologies to ensure the best possible outcomes. If you are experiencing TMJ-related pain or discomfort, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team to learn more about our treatment options and how we can help you achieve optimal oral health and wellbeing.
