Why does one need a TMJ SPECIALIST?

Well , the need of a specialist arises for two reasons 1) when the problem remains undiagnosed or misdiagnosed 2) when there are some anatomical changes happened in the Joint.

What are these Anatomical changes ?

So talking about anatomical changes first u have to understand that anatomy means the bones and muscles forming the joint along with ligaments that used to make movement.

These bones , Muscles , ligaments along with a Disc (Meniscus) are arranged in a particular relation to each other and work in synchrony. When there are changes in this arrangement of position or Size or Structure thats when your Surgeon would tell you that there are anatomical changes in your Joint.


What is a Disc , I keep hearing this a lot when TMJ is mentioned ?

A disc (Meniscus) is a structure present almost in all Joints. The purpose God put this Disc in place is to facilitate movement , act as a shock absorber for Occlusion loads and in simple language avoid Bone to rub on Bone.

It is assisted with a lubricant called as synovial Fluid to carry seamless movement without any locking or hindrance. When ever this Disc Slips out of Position that is when u start hearing funny noises from your TMJ and also would have Pain of movement, along with changes in Joint.

I have Pain in the whole of my head because of TMJ?

Yes ! TMJ disorders normally refer the Pain a Neurogical Kind of Pain all over the Face and head Region. The Pain inititally is felt inside the Ear and hence most patients land up in the ENT clinic for pain relief.

I am told about TMJ Arthroscopy, Is it safe ?

TMJ Arthroscopy is a pretty safe and minimally invasive procedure when it comes to manage TMJ Disc Displacement Issues. It is a one-day procedure and does not leave any visible scars behind. In this procedure the Surgeon would put a camera inside your Joint from one end and an instrument through another port from the other end, this would give him access to all the parts of your Joint along with the Disc for necessary treatment. It also flushes the joint ( lavage ) and increases the lubrication of the Joint.
