Minimally Invasive Treatment for TMJ
TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that causes pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint. The disorder can be caused by several factors, including trauma, teeth grinding, and arthritis. Arthrocentesis is a minimally invasive treatment for TMJ that can provide significant relief for patients. Unlike traditional surgeries, arthrocentesis is a simple, in-office procedure that involves injecting a sterile solution into the joint to reduce inflammation.
Benefits of Arthrocentesis:
- Minimally invasive TMJ treatment
- Performed via small injections
- Removes debris and the source of inflammation
- Stimulates natural jaw regeneration and healing
- Negligible risk of complications
- Concludes within 30 minutes
