Does My Child Need Surgery To Treat TMJ?

Children affected by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) can experience pain and discomfort when eating and yawning. You may have heard about TMJ surgery, but this is not the only treatment option.

– There are several non-invasive TMJ treatments available.

– Mouthguards can help correct or manage TMJ if teeth grinding is the cause.

– Orthodontics may help if a bad bite is the cause.

– Surgery is often seen as a last-resort solution.

Call the Dental Barn in Hailsham East Sussex on 01323 325397  for further information or to make an appointment with one of our dentists or dental hygienists.
