What Is TMJ Surgery?
TMJ surgery is a medical procedure that is performed to treat disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ is the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull, and it allows for the opening and closing of the mouth. TMJ disorders can cause pain, discomfort, and difficulty with chewing and speaking.
TMJ surgery is typically only recommended after more conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, medications, and lifestyle changes, have been tried and have not been effective. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of TMJ surgery with a qualified healthcare provider before making a decision about whether or not to undergo the procedure.
TMJ surgery is a treatment option for those who suffer from severe TMJ pain and dysfunction that cannot be relieved by more conservative treatments. Surgery is typically considered a last resort, and most cases of TMJ disorder can be managed with non-surgical treatments such as medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes.
