Temporomandibular Joint Procedures

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can cause much pain and distress. Depending on the cause, thankfully most of these cases self resolve with conservative treatment. When conservative treatment fails however, there is a myriad of surgical treatment options that may be beneficial to improving one’s pain levels and quality of life. Surgical options can range from lavage (washout) of the joint all the way to total joint reconstruction/replacement.
