Are There Surgical Treatment Options for TMJ Pain?

Posted on 1/23/2023 by SmileCOS Dentistry
Fortunately, there are several surgical treatments for addressing TMJ symptoms. The source of the pain and the severity of the symptoms will determine the appropriate treatment. Arthrocentesis is a surgical approach for treating TMJ pain. Joint aspiration is a minimally invasive treatment in which a tiny needle drains excess fluid from the affected joint. Inflammation and pain may both be alleviated as a result. Arthroscopy is a different technique that can be tried. This more complex operation involves inserting a tiny camera into the joint to give the surgeon a look around. The surgeon can remove the damaged tissue or restore the joint using a little equipment. Total joint replacement surgery is considered necessary when damage to the joint is extensive. Major surgical surgery is replacing a damaged joint with an artificial one. This more difficult and intrusive surgery can help restore function and alleviate pain. Other Treatment Options Other Than Surgery Can Be Used It is best to exhaust less invasive options like medicine and physical therapy before resorting to surgery. Surgery is a drastic measure that should only be undertaken when all other treatment options have been tried and failed. The best way to alleviate the discomfort of TMJ disorder is to consult a medical professional. They can advise you on how to best deal with discomfort and enhance your quality of life.
