TMJ Arthroscopy

Malfunctioning of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be a major inconvenience. It can cause a wide-range of symptoms that hinders your ability to live everyday life healthy and happily. As a result, if you have a TMJ disorder, it’s essential to seek treatment. One of the most effective ways to diagnose and treat TMJ disorder is with a TMJ arthroscopy. During arthroscopic jaw surgery, your oral surgeon inserts an arthroscope (a pencil-thin, lighted tube) into the jaw joint through a small incision in the skin. There is a small camera attached to the arthroscope that transmits close-up images of the TMJ joint to a TV monitor. Your oral surgeon can then insert surgical instruments through the arthroscope to do surgery on the joint and prevent any need for more surgical incisions.
