Yes, I've talked at length with 3 surgeons about everything (natural)that can be used for replacement material. I was told as recently as last Sept. that nothing holds up in the TM joint. There's too much usage and "load" on this joint.
I think there are possibly some Doctors who will attempt these procedures, but the ones I've seen have tried it all and had too many failures. The only procedure they do at the present is to remove the disc.
They say this works better long term. My Dentist, whom I trust, says this is correct information. He says that all of the "replacement" attempts he has seen, heard of and kept up with in stats, end up with discectomies.
