TMJ DISORDERS AND THEIR
TREATMENT OPTIONS
www.chennaidentalclinic.in
OVERVIEW
TMJ disorder?
The temporomandibular  joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your
jawbone to your skull
You have one joint on each side of your jaw
TMJ disorders — a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD — can cause pain in
your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement

Arthrocentesis: It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves
the insertion of small needles into the joint so that fluid can be
irrigated through the joint to remove debris and inflammatory
byproducts
When none of the above treatments work, the doctor suggests
going for certain surgical procedures like:
SURGERIES
www.chennaidentalclinic.in
In some people, corticosteroid injections into the joint may be
helpful. Infrequently, injecting botulinum toxin type A into the jaw
muscles used for chewing may relieve pain associated with TMJ
disorders
INJECTIONS
www.chennaidentalclinic.in
In some cases, arthroscopic surgery can be as effective for
treating various types of TMJ disorders as open-joint surgery
A small thin tube (cannula) is placed into the joint space, an
arthroscope is then inserted and small surgical instruments are
used for surgery
TMJ arthroscopy has fewer risks and complications than open-
joint surgery does
TMJ ARTHROSCOPY
www.chennaidentalclinic.in
Modified condylotomy addresses the TMJ indirectly, with surgery
on the mandible, but not in the joint itself
It may be helpful for treatment of pain and if locking is
experienced.
MODIFIED CONDYLOTOMY
www.chennaidentalclinic.in
If your jaw pain does not resolve with more-conservative
treatments and it appears to be caused by a structural problem
in the joint, your doctor or dentist may suggest open-joint
surgery  to repair or replace the joint
However, open-joint surgery involves more risks than other
procedures do and should be considered very carefully, after
discussing the pros and cons
