The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a small hinge that connects your jaw to your skull. Problems with the TMJ can cause significant pain and discomfort. Thanks to recent advances in medical care, we can use a minimally invasive arthroscopic technique to correct TMJ disorders.
Minimally Invasive Treatment for TMJ
TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, causes great pain and discomfort. The TMJ connects the lower jaw to the skull and is used for chewing, talking, and other jaw movements. If this joint becomes inflamed or damaged, it can lead to pain in the jaw, face, neck, or shoulders, difficulty chewing, clicking, popping, or grinding noise when moving the jaw, and a locking sensation. Dr. Fathimani performs the cutting-edge, minimally invasive, arthroscopic McCain technique to alleviate TMJ pain.
Benefits of Arthroscopy:
- Minimally invasive treatment for TMJ disorder
- McCain arthroscope clearly visualizes 1.8 millimeters for optimal precision
- Success rate of over 90% in treating TMJ problems
- Allows for more mobility in the joint space
- Minimal side effects, activity limitations, and downtime
