Trying to make sense of my mom's TMJD

Hi everyone!
This is my first post. I have been reading the posts here and all very interesting and informative. I am hoping that I will be able to get some good information for my mother.
Background: She is 76 and has been dealing with TMJD issues for over 25 years. She has had splints and physical therapy. Her recent MRI showed R joint displaced and fails to reduce and the L has a small tear in the meniscus but position is ok. She also has small bone spurs on both sides. I don't know her mm opening but she is only to able to open "2 fingers". Today, she is seeing her dentist/surgeon to discuss the results and options. It has been suggested that she be fitted for a new splint and possibly an arthroscopy/arthroplasty. I have done alot of research already for her but she would really like to hear the personal stories and what issues you have encountered with the arthroscopy/arthroplasty.
I would also appreciate if anyone has a doctor in Florida or Indiana that they have had success with and really trust, to pass along their name/location. I really appreciate any help/information that you have. Thanks!

You should post this on the TMJ page on this board, as you would be more likely to get replies on it.

If you go to the page which lists all the groups on this website, there is a section on Dental Groups. Under there are only two groups, this one and the other one is the TMJ group
