medial/lateral displacement

I went back to my TMJ specialist and he suspects anterior and medial displacement with reduction. The click when I close is much louder than the one when I open if that can give you any hints We didn't do XRays yet but he is an expert in tmj and just touching and listening give him a good idea in general. I guess the endoscopy procedure created the problem.

So he adjusted my nighttime and daytime appliances again to try give more space and eliminate that clicking sound and also the dull pain I feel around the joint. For the moment (1 week), no improvements. I am really ****** at the endoscopy center to have done that to me as I felt very good before the procedure (after 3 years of wearing appliances), I guess I was predisposed to have that kind of trauma.

Do you guys have more information regarding anterior and medial displacement and how bite appliance can fix it: ie: put back the disc in place.
