Understanding TMJ

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a critical component of our jaw that connects the upper and lower mandible. When a person experiences pain or dysfunction in this joint, it is referred to as TMJ Disorder. It can cause a myriad of issues ranging from pain while chewing, an aching sensation near the ear, facial pain to the locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth. At Elevated Oral Surgery, we utilize leading-edge technology to evaluate and treat TMJ disorders effectively. 

Our Approach to TMJ Treatment

We understand that each individual is unique, and so are their symptoms and experiences with TMJ disorders.

Hence, at Elevated Oral Surgery, treatments are precisely tailored according to the patient’s specific condition.

We employ a host of non-invasive methods as the first line of approach, which includes medication, physical therapy, and dental splints.

For more severe cases where non-surgical treatments aren’t sufficient, surgical options are considered to provide the patient with lasting relief.
