Are You Suffering from TMJ Disorder?
TMJ Disorder (TMD) is more common than you think. Between 30-50% of adults suffer from this dental condition. But, because it has such diverse and seemingly unrelated symptoms, it often goes undetected. Once diagnosed, it is easily treatable.
Because there are a number of effective non-surgical treatments for TMJ Disorder, oral surgery should be considered a last resort - indicated only where all other treatments have failed to deliver long-term relief.
Surgery will generally be recommended in only the most severe cases of TMJ Disorder, where the extent of damage or level of continual pain may outweigh the risks inherent in any surgical procedure.
