TMD Disorder

Lakeway TMJ Disorder

 

Do you live in the Lakeway, Texas area and suffer from TMJ Disorder?

The big question is what is TMJ? TMJ Disorder, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is described as joint/jaw pain that often is associated with clicking or popping of the jaw, the inability to open mouth easily and pain that comes with chewing food or gum. TMJ often comes from a misalignment within the jaw or in the joint near the jaw. Consult with an oral surgeon, or a dentist, to see if you suffer from TMJ. There are many nonsurgical and surgical options for reducing the pain and discomfort associated with the TMJ Disorder and an oral health professional can help recommend the best approach.

What is the Procedure?

The surgical route involves a tiny camera, and a few small surgical instruments, being placed in a small incision that is made in front of the ear. Scars typically are not visible after the surgery, due to the incisions being so small. An oral surgeon can go into further detail about the procedure, and what it would entail, if need be. The bright side is, not many who suffer from TMJ need to go through with this surgical procedure.
