TMJ Disorder Reviews
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that allows your mouth to open and close and move side to side smoothly. When you place your fingers on your face in front of your ear and open your mouth, you can feel your TMJ at work. When the TMJ is not functioning properly, it can cause a variety of problems in your everyday life. TMJ disorders often cause difficulty in patients' ability to eat and speak, and in more serious cases, can prohibit patients from living a normal life.
Fortunately, there are several treatments available for TMJ dysfunction — both surgical and nonsurgical. When you visit Southern Surgical Arts, we will explore all of your options for treatment before recommending surgery. In most cases, corrective jaw surgery can treat a TMJ disorder and help you regain your normal function. If you'd like to hear more from our patients about TMJ disorders and our approach to treating them, please feel free to watch the testimonial videos below.
