TMJ Surgery

TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that hinges your jaw to the rest of your mouth. Unfortunately, it’s estimated that around 10 million Americans have some kind of TMJ disorder, with pain in the chewing muscles and jaw joint being the most common symptom.

Symptoms of TMJ

  • Jaw muscle stiffness
  • Limited movement or jaw locking
  • Radiating pain in the jaw, neck or face
  • A popping or clicking noise when opening or closing the mouth

Fortunately, there are many devices and procedures that can drastically improve or get rid of TMJ symptoms altogether. Only 20% of TMJ sufferers will ever actually need surgery.
