TMJ Treatment in Bangalore

The temporomandibular joint performs as a sliding axis, connecting the jawbone to the skull on both sides. TMJ disorders are a type of disorder causing pain in the muscles and in the jaw joint. Various factors including genetics, arthritis or previous jaw injury can cause jaw joint disorder. Anew advanced aesthetic daycare centre offers surgical and non-surgical treatment procedures to eliminate temporomandibular joint disorders using most advanced techniques from best skilled aesthetic surgeons. Various methods and procedures performed to relieve the pain and discomfort caused by TMJ disorders includes:

Laser Bio Stimulation

Laser bio-stimulation is a new treatment technique for the treatment of the temporomandibular joint disorder. The laser bio-stimulation technique uses low-intensity laser to relieve pain within few minutes after the therapy. In this procedure the laser beam moves up and down on the affected area and the pain is considerably reduced and removes the movement restriction of the jaw joints. This is a minimal invasive method and provides instant relief from pain and discomfort caused by the TMJ disorders. At Anew advanced aesthetic daycare centre, we rely on US FDA approved lumenis machine for laser assisted treatments.

TMJ Occlusal Splints

Occlusal Splint is referred to as a removable artificial appliance that fits into the teeth to rectify bite abnormalities and jaw imperfections. They are also known as jaw repositioners and are used to improve the overlaying of upper and lower arch of teeth. The occlusal splints re-centre the TMJ disc gradually and regular splint adjustments are required to bring in the desired results.

TMJ Arthroscopy

TMJ arthroscopic surgery is an effective treating procedure for various types of TMJ disorders. During an arthroscopy surgery, a small thin tube known as a cannula is placed into the joint space between the jaw bone and the skull. An arthroscope is inserted along with small surgical tools to perform the surgery. TMJ arthroscopy is minimal invasive and rectifies the abnormality and helps retain the jaw movements without pain and discomfort.

Bite Corrections

After the TMJ discs and jaw are aligned in position, the teeth position and arrangement has to be corrected. Bite correction process involves spot grinding of the opposite teeth in the upper and lower arches. Bite correction is a non surgical synchronization of the jaw position to bring balance in the face shape, symmetry and profile.

At Anew advanced aesthetic day care centre, we perform surgical and non-surgical procedures to correct the TMJ disorders and to reduce pain and discomfort caused by jaw misplacement and helps retain balance and symmetry to the facial traits. We offer the best and latest treatment techniques from well qualified and experienced specialists and aesthetic surgeons.
