Patients experience pronounced discomfort when the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) does not work together with connective tissues and muscles. Luckily for people suffering from TMJ disorders, there are a variety of treatment options that can be tailored to each patient’s needs. Surgical interventions can include arthroscopy and open joint restructuring.

Jaw misalignments can sometimes be treated with orthodontics; if these treatments are unsuccessful, surgery can be considered. Restoring jaw alignment with facial surgery at the skeletal level can make breathing, speaking, biting, and chewing more comfortable.
Advanced periodontal disease and other conditions can diminish the bone density of the upper jaw, which eliminates the possibility traditional dental implant placement. In this procedure, the implants are connected to a bridge. Not all patients are ideal candidates for this procedure and there may be other options that can address your needs. Patients are encouraged to schedule a consultation with either of our oral surgeons to discuss zygomatic implants.
