Dear Dislocated Jaw
the best advice that anyone of us TMJ'S can give
you is, to see an OMS doctor (oral & Maxillofacial surgeon),have some x-rays done
like an MRI to see just what your problem is, it may not be TMJ, but you need to find this out
first before you make any other decision's..TMJ
is very hard to find the right answer's to, and
only you can make those decision's, educate
yourself on the subject by reading books, and
talking to others who suffer from this disease..
I suffered for many years, did all of the conserevative treatments, had 4 arthroscopy
surgeries that did not work for me..Then in Dec of
1990 I had the Christensen Implants the Fossa-
Eminence Prosthesis implanted..They took the place
of my dics that had badley deteriorated with
rheumatioid arthritis..I am now pain free in the
TMJ area, and eating everything I want!!!
There again I can only speak of my experence with
my Implants and not for others..
And this is what worked for me, if you would like
more info please feel free to email me anytime
