Common problems of the temporomandibular joint include but not limited to:

INTERNAL DERANGEMENT

OSTEOARTHRITIS

RECURRENT DISLOCATION

CONDYLAR HYPERPLASIA

IDIOPATHIC CONDYLAR RESORPTION

Once a patient has an accurate diagnosis and deemed a surgical candidate, initial treatment often involves arthroscopy. This is a minimally invasive technique utilizing a very small camera that inserts into the jaw joint. With this, various procedures can be undertaken depending on the diagnosis. 

Other treatments can include high condylar shaves and total joint replacement for end stage disease.
